The Impact of the Clean Power Plan: Modeling for Strategic Insights
A Resources for the Future (RFF)/Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) Seminar
February 11, 2016 | 9:00–11:45 a.m. EST | Breakfast available at 8:30 a.m.
About the Event
The US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Clean Power Plan—the first national standard to target carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from the electric power sector—is intended to reduce emissions 32 percent below 2005 levels by 2030. However, industry leaders, policymakers, and the public still have questions about how the Clean Power Plan will impact the mix of power generation, the interconnected grid, cross-state electricity markets, and how consumers use electricity. New modeling results from researchers at Resources for the Future and the Electric Power Research Institute provide strategic insight into these questions and more.
This event is the second in RFF and EPRI’s 2016 Clean Power Plan series. Watch the video from the first event, where experts discussed formal comments to EPA on the federal plan and trading rules.
