Dr. David Ripplinger submits grant titled 'ND Energy Generation'

David Ripplinger

Dr. David Ripplinger, Assistant Professor in Agribusiness and Applied Economics Department, PI and Dr. Dragan Miljkovic and Dr. Saleem Shaik as Co-PI’s have submitted a grant proposal in the amount of  $39,999 to the North Dakota Department of Commerce.

The title of this proposal is “North Dakota Energy Generation”

Little work has been done to measure the efficiency of North Dakota’s energy industry.  The goal of the proposed project is to provide information to state and federal policy makers and regulator, consumers, industry, and environmental advocates on the efficiency of North Dakota’s energy industry.

The goal will be achieved by estimating the efficiency of North Dakota energy producers using data envelopment analysis (DEA) or stochastic frontier analysis (SFA).  The analysis will support the investigation of the efficiency of energy production facilities in their use of inputs (eg energy, labor, technology) to produce outputs (eg energy sold).
