ICF to support EPA's clean-air division

By David Hubler

ICF International Inc. has won a five-year, $42 million contract from the Environmental Protection Agency to provide modeling and analyses services for EPA's Clean Air Markets Division.

The division develops market-based regulations and establishes emissions trading systems to cost-effectively reduce air pollutants. A component of this contract will be modeling and analyses of potential climate change policy in the electric utility sector, ICF said.

ICF will use its power sector modeling tool, the Integrated Planning Model, to examine the costs and market effects of alternative carbon trading policies and programs and their impact on consumers, businesses and industry.

ICF also will provide expertise in several areas, including climate change, acid rain, mercury deposition and sector-based energy and air emissions initiatives.

ICF, based in Fairfax, Va., has worked with EPA for 30 years, including more than 20 years supporting the agency's air quality programs such as the Acid Rain Program. In December 2007, ICF won a $23.3 million contract from EPA to support the clean-energy programs of the Energy Supply and Industry Branch's Office of Air and Radiation.
