Examination Of The Regional Supply And Demand Balance For Renewable Electricity In The United States Through 2015: Projecting From 2009 Through 2015 (Revised), Lori Bird, David Hurlbut, Pearl Donohoo, Karlynn Cory, Claire Kreycik

Publications (E)

This report examines the balance between the demand and supply of new renewable electricity in the United States on a regional basis through 2015. It expands on a 2007 NREL study (Swezey et al. 2007) that assessed the supply and demand balance on a national basis. As with the earlier study, this analysis relies on estimates of renewable energy supplies compared to demand for renewable energy generation needed to meet existing state renewable portfolio standard (RPS) policies in 28 states, as well as demand by consumers who voluntarily purchase renewable energy. However, it does not address demand by utilities that ...

My Money Or Yours: House Money Payment Effects, Larry Davis, Patrick Joyce, Matthew Roelofs 2010 University of St. Thomas, Minnesota

My Money Or Yours: House Money Payment Effects, Larry Davis, Patrick Joyce, Matthew Roelofs

Accounting Faculty Publications

This paper reports the results of an experiment designed to study how subjects’ decision making may be affected by the timing of participation payments (or show-up fees). The experiment follows Davis et al. (J. Econ. 30:69–95, 2004) where subjects were asked to make a sequential purchase decision and were given the opportunity to purchase information about the value of a good prior to a decision to purchase the good itself. There, subjects purchased information less often than expected which was interpreted as risk-seeking behavior. Here, we test a payment hypothesis by varying the timing of the participation payment ...

Consultancy Designer Involvement In New Product Development: Mapping A Novel Design Leadership Process, Fiona Maciver, Aidan O'Driscoll 2010 Dublin Institute of Technology

Consultancy Designer Involvement In New Product Development: Mapping A Novel Design Leadership Process, Fiona Maciver, Aidan O'Driscoll

Conference papers

The role of design and designers in new product development (NPD) has always been problematic and complex in its approach and in the extent of its involvement (Leenders et al., 2007; Murray and O’Driscoll, 1996; Veryzer and Borja de Mozota, 2005). As the industrial design profession seeks to confront the challenges of a recessionary environment, both the designer led ‘intuitive’ approach to NPD, and the marketer led ‘systematic’ approach become outmoded (Cross, 2001; Martin, 2007). There is shortcoming, even ambivalence, in the NPD and design management literature as to how design is involved in NPD (Cooper et al., 2003 ...

Suitable Knowledge Management In Project Environment, Taya Polyaninova

Dissertations

Knowledge is becoming one of the main assets for organizations that want to improve their competitiveness in currently changing market.

Companies use Knowledge Management to create, identify and distribute knowledge and experiences arising from projects within organisation. However, as projects are done to create unique deliverables and they are never the same, there is a difficulty in ...


International Migration, Noel Gaston, Doug Nelson 2010 Bond University

International Migration, Noel Gaston, Doug Nelson

Globalisation and Development Centre

Extract:

Like immigration itself, economic research on migration seems to come in waves. The large scale of current global migration, and the sometimes quite ugly politics associated with that migration, has produced just such a wave of research. Theoretical and empirical research on immigration, in particular, occurs across the social sciences, with particularly large bodies in economics, demography/sociology, and political science. Within Economics, the study of immigration falls between trade and labor economics, with sizable bodies of both theoretical and econometric work. To limit the field of coverage, and maintain consistency with the other chapters in the volume, we ...
