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.
