EPA's Power Sector Carbon Pollution Standards

>NCDAQ's proposed 111(d) rule package - October 23, 2015

> In August 2015, the United States Environmental Protection Agency ("EPA") finalized greenhouse gas ("GHG") emission guidelines for existing fossil fuel-fired electric generating units ("EGUs"). The final guidelines can be found here . Additionally, EPA proposed a federal plan and model rules 

The United States Environmental Protection Agency ("EPA"), in response to the President's June 2013 memorandum "Power Sector Carbon Pollution Standards," is developing greenhouse gas ("GHG") emission standards for fossil fuel-fired electric generating units ("EGUs"). Specifically, the EPA is developing Clean Air Act ("CAA") §111 emission standards for new EGUs and emission guidelines for existing units.

In June 2014, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed new guidelines for its Clean Power Plan aimed at reducing carbon emissions from power plants. According to EPA, the guidelines would help cut national carbon emissions from electric generating units by about 30 percent below 2005 levels by 2030. The EPA plans to adopt final guidelines by June 2015, with public hearings and other opportunities for public input during the interim period.
