Bill Gates provides an insightful way to think about the cost of carbon emissions, which he calls the Green Premium. It's a worthwhile read, but I think there is one important factor missing from Bill's equation: ENERGY EFFICIENCY, which I wrote about here: https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:ugcPost:6717841549125787648?commentUrn=urn%3Ali%3Acomment%3A%28ugcPost%3A6717841549125787648%2C6717852480828391424%29

FYI: There is an existing energy industry standard/FERC Regulation for energy efficiency that could/may serve as a platform to implement the Green Premium methodology that Bill has suggested: WEQ-021, Measurement and Verification of Energy Efficiency Products ([WEQ] Version 003.2,Dec. 8, 2017); https://ecfr.federalregister.gov/current/title-18/chapter-I/subchapter-B/part-38

It's worth considering, IMO.
