In 2007 EPRI released its first Prism and MERGE analyses, providing a technically and economically feasible roadmap for the electricity sector as it seeks to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions. The Prism analysis provided a comprehensive assessment of potential CO2 reductions in key technology areas of the electricity sector. The MERGE analysis identified the optimum economic technology portfolio in response to a given CO2 emissions constraint.
