GHG Regulation of Existing Power Plants under the Clean Air Act

President Obama has directed the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to issue final regulations for the existing fleet of power plants by June 2015. Understanding the mechanics of such regulations is essential for policymakers, industry and other stakeholders. To advance constructive dialogue on this complex and important topic, the Bipartisan Policy Center’s (BPC) Energy Project, along with the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners, is convening a series of workshops in the coming months.

BPC intends to work with a broad set of stakeholders to design the workshop series. Future discussions will consider the varied approaches that states have underway to regulate the power sector and will investigate analytic approaches to assess the costs, environmental impacts and regional implications of GHG policies.
