Assignment – Policy adoption, implementation, post-implementation and Evaluation
Instructions for Unit 6 & 7 Individual Summative Assignment:
South Africa is facing what appears to be a crisis in the production and distribution of electricity. To address this, consideration has been given to: the implementation of a new licensing threshold for embedded generation projects; and the procurement of renewable energy projects rather than coal power. As part of the COP 26 climate change conference loan finances have also been agreed for South Africa to move away from fossil fuels. However, there appear to be conflicting approaches adopted by government, with the minister of energy and mineral resources defending energy generation using fossil fuels and attempting to build momentum for the use of Powerships for emergency power production to address load-shedding. The CEO of Eskom has however raised concerns that power stations are being deliberately sabotaged to harm the power grid and to drive up the need for emergency power production.
You form part of an energy policy task team advising the Minister of Public Enterprises on an approach to achieve the adoption of the workable energy policy going forward, which includes stabilising Eskom. While the various policies appear to be formally adopted by Government, their implementation appears far from clear.
The Minister has therefore asked your team to produce a technical memorandum addressing the following:
• First, perform a brief situation analysis to clarify the current state of the policy process;
• Second, clarify the potential stakeholders who may strongly influence the adoption of a sustainable policy framework;
• Third, propose a process and associated measures that could lead to the successful adoption and implementation of the sustainable energy policy framework; and
• Fourth, identify specific risks in the policy process that could lead to policy failure.
While you have been provided with a very specific policy context, the assignment does not seek to test your knowledge of energy policy.
The assignment does however seek to examine your understanding of the overall module content and your ability to apply it to a practical context. You are however free to draw on the context, including actual published material, to strengthen your assignment.
1: It costs a lot more to carefully design and construct a building enclosure for a high-performance house. Does this effort make us any happier? Or, do you think that we should not fuss with the extra expense for the internal components of the building that are not visible to us anyway? 2: Air inside is invisible, does not move that fast, is always there. So do you think that it is worth all of the interest in mechanical systems and indoor air quality? respond to each question with a separate response. each response requires a 250 word minimum.
The Murka’s have lived in their Forest Glenn pre-1950’s one and half story home for 60 years. They bought it new after WWII and have done little to upgrade the house. The house is now in what has become one of the trendiest areas in Forest Glenn. Many of the surrounding houses have been upgraded including things that would be considered “sustainable” such as new insulation, HVAC, etc. Most have additions and dormers to make second floors usable. The Murkta’s are downsizing now that their family is grown and moved on. Luckily, because of the area, they have found a buyer willing to pay a lot of money to be in the neighborhood. This is partly because of the mature trees, gardens, and large yard. The new owners are the Jones’. They want to make the house and yard into an example of sustainable development. Unfortunately, because the price of the house was quite high, they have limited funds to do that. Because of that they chose the low-bid contractor, Fred’s Fly by Nite Remodelers. The Jones’ wanted the house so badly, they chose to waive an inspection during the purchase process. They were somewhat surprised to find there was little insulation in the walls or the attic. Since they are planning to enlarge the upstairs with dormers to add a large bedroom and bath, they aren’t too worried about that. [Note. As a low bid contractor, Fred doesn’t have any diagnostics done on the house before, during, or after the work is completed.] But the final project looks great and the Jones’ are thrilled. The new windows (Fred tells them that the super-efficient ones are a waste of money) look really nice. They have a new furnace too. Fred has the same opinion of the furnace as he does the windows – high efficiency is just a waste of money. He also talked the Jones’ into adding a humidifier so the new wood floors wouldn’t dry out (and they would be more comfortable he says). Right after moving into the house in September, the Jones’ throw a big party for their friends and new neighbors. Everyone is very impressed with the remodeling. The Jones’ hunker down for winter believing they have the best house in the neighborhood and are ready for the worst that winter can bring. Sadly, the first two winters are indeed the worst. There are surprises that the Jones’ certainly did not anticipate. They had ice dams both years. (The neighbors report that the house never had ice dams in the past but they also did not have much snow on the roof.) Water drips into the upstairs bedroom from the ceiling and there is a musty odor that doesn’t seem to go away – even after spraying with air fresheners. The new windows have loads of condensation. They finally call Fred to see what can be done. Unfortunately, Fred has flown the coop and can no longer be located. Desperate, the Jones’ learn about Residential Inspection and Solutions (RIS) from a friend who assures them they are the best and specialize in ice dams, building diagnostics, and infrared thermal imaging. RIS visits the house and completes the testing. They explain to the distraught Jones’ that their house is very leaky – even by old standards. And, that the humidity level in the house is extremely high. Not only that, the insulation was not installed correctly. The exterior walls’ moisture measurements are very high. First, explain why the Jones’ are having all of these problems now – especially after paying all that money to get a ‘sustainable’ house? What is the importance of having the testing by RIS? What should the Jones’ do about these problems? What course of action do you recommend? There are almost unlimited options that could be considered. Explain clearly what you think their actions should be and support your choices with information learned in the text and lectures. Note. Your grade will be based more on the support of your choices than the practical assessment of the situation. Be sure to cite your sources of support.
Final exam, 5 questions, 800 each max. ONLY USE THE SOURCES I WILL PROVIDE since the professor needs only this material to be used. No references needed since they are exam questions. I will provide the sources as soon as I accept the bid. I am attaching the questions below.
Please see PDF attachment for details. The topic of the term paper is COVID-19, Wildfires and Air pollution. I recommended using western United States. References should follow the format instructions by Environmental Health Perspective (http://ehp.niehs.nih.gov/instructions-to-authors/), be included at the end of the paper, and should not be counted in paper length.
This assignment asks you to take what you have learned about interdisciplinary research in environmental studies and review the final book we’re reading in class, Gwen Ottinger’s Refining Expertise. Drawing from readings across the course, you are tasked with accounting for Ottinger’s argumentative framework, data, method, and theory, as well as offering your own position on the research and where you think future studies can build on this project. I can purchase a copy of the e-book if you do not have one already. Also any additional files you might need please ask.
Write an essay on the impact of Rachel Carson’s book Silent Spring on the environmental movement and explain why has Silent Spring been so impactful? Your answer should approach this question from both a scientific (information extracting) and literary (aesthetic) perspective. Also consider the relevance of Silent Spring for environmental decision-making today. How has the science content contributed to Silent Spring’s impact? How has the aesthetic style/use of imagery/storytelling contributed to Silent Spring’s impact? How and why is Silent Spring relevant to environmental decision-making today? Use of supplemental readings to support assignment arguments and claims
Hi, I’m Gon and I’m more than halfway done writing my bachelor’s thesis. I am currently completely stuck because I’m not too familiar with the content and I’m a little out of motivation. I only want to finish so I can get my degree and forget about it. I would need someone to not only finish writing whatever’s left to write (I estimate around 5-7 pages), but also to edit what I’ve written so far (it shouldn’t be too difficult since it already has been corrected by my supervisor a couple times and it includes their comments). The thesis is on Carbon Emissions by northern lakes and how this may or may not affect global carbon emissions. I hope you can help me 🙂
You should draw on sources (e.g. cases, treaties, academic commentary etc) that we have used in lectures to write your coursework, but you also need to undertake some independent research – using online databases such as Westlaw, Lexis, Heinonline or Jstor, and materials from the library.
Sources should be cited in accordance with OSCOLA and OSCOLA international law. You should include a bibliography – text in the bibliography is excluded from the word count.
And whatever words or phrases are mentioned in the book review they need to be in the footnote
