Article
Full-text available
The need for transitioning towards low-carbon energy systems, and the recent boom in available data, allows for a constant re-evaluation of global electricity sector decarbonization progress, and its underlying theoretical assumptions. Arguably, the existing decarbonization literature and institutional support frameworks focus on top-down supply si...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Hourly electrical energy demand predictions improve grid reliability, stability, and minimize costs by maintaining system frequency and optimizing unit commitment and economic dispatch. Weather data, specifically ambient temperature and humidity, is commonly used as a predictor for demand. This paper utilizes the data from a recent demand response...
Article
Full-text available
Background It is widely accepted that electricity is an important element for improving levels of human development and wealth creation in rural areas. Yet, little research has explored the conditions under which electrification could lead to wealth creation post-electrification. Using Kenya as a case study, this paper uses natural capital (NC) and...
Article
Mexico's recent energy reform (2013) has provided the foundations for increased private participation in attempts to offset or reverse the country's continued decline in fossil fuel production. This country is currently on path to becoming a net energy importer by 2020. Conversely, in 2015, and for the first time in over 20 years, the United States...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The increased penetration of uncertain and variable renewable energy presents various resource and operational electric grid challenges1. Micro-level (household and small commercial) demand-side grid flexibility could be a cost-effective strategy to integrate high penetrations of wind and solar energy, but literature and field deployments exploring...

Article
Full-text available
The global carbon emissions budget over the next decades depends critically on the choices made by fast-growing emerging economies. Few studies exist, however, that develop country-specific energy system integration insights that can inform emerging economies in this decision-making process. High spatial- and temporal-resolution power system planni...
Article
Despite ongoing interest in deploying Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) for sustainable development, their use in climate change adaptation remains under-studied. Based on the integration of adaptation theory and the existing literature on the use of ICTs in development, we present an analytical model for conceptualizing the contrib...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Despite substantial gains in the past few decades, 550 million people in sub-Saharan Africa still lack access to electricity. Rural areas present the largest electrification challenge, with access levels below 12% in most countries. Public rural electrification efforts, where undertaken, have generally effected slow and limited change. Further, to...
Article
Full-text available
We investigate empirically how national-level CO2 emissions are affected by urbanization and environmental policy. We use statistical modeling to explore panel data on annual CO2 emissions from 82 countries during 1983-2005. Random- and fixed-effects models indicate that, on the global average, the urbanization-emission elasticity value is 0.95 (i....
Article
To compare adherence to second-generation tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) dasatinib and nilotinib in patients with imatinib resistant or intolerant chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) receiving second-line therapies. Two U.S. administrative claims databases were reviewed (January 1997 to March 2011) for CML patients previously treated with imatinib, w...
Article
To compare healthcare resource utilization and healthcare costs between COPD patients who used multiple long-acting inhalers versus those who used a single long-acting inhaler. COPD patients meeting study inclusion criteria were identified in the Market Scan database (2004-2008) and were classified as being a multiple- or single-inhaler user. 11,74...
Article
Full-text available
To compare persistence and adherence among patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) treated with either multiple- or single- long-acting maintenance inhalers. Patients with ≥2 COPD medical claims and ≥2 prescriptions for a long-acting inhaler within 1 year were classified as single- or multiple-inhaler users based on their treatme...
Article
3841 Background Ph+ CML patients may develop PE, as an adverse event of some tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI) drug therapy. PE is characterized by an excessive accumulation of fluid in the fluid-filled space that surrounds the lungs. PE requires medical care, may compromise the course of CML treatment, and have economic consequence beyond the cost...
