BPC Modeling Results: Projected Impact of Changing Conditions on the Power Sector

Environmental Regulation and Electric System Reliability summarizes the current state of knowledge about challenges facing the electric power sector as it seeks to maintain reliability without jeopardizing important process on public health and environmental protections. The report assesses the possible impacts of regulation and identifies the range of strategies available to ensure a smooth transition. BPC has developed a number of findings and recommendations building on our own analytic work, our review of a range of existing analyses, and the expert presentations and public dialogue at the workshop series the BPC hosted with the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) and Northeast States for Coordinated Air Use Management (NESCAUM).

These workshops featured presentations and panel discussions by nearly 60 energy experts, including representatives of the electric utility industry, environmental organizations, labor unions, state regulators, regional transmission organizations, federal agencies, and Congressional staff, and informed the report.
