About the Event

A Resources for the Future (RFF)/Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) Seminar

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently invited public comment on two important elements of its Clean Power Plan: the federal implementation plan and model trading rules. The comments, due January 21, 2016, give stakeholders the opportunity to provide feedback on the challenges and opportunities for state implementation of the carbon dioxide emissions guidelines for power plants.

This RFF and EPRI seminar focused on a diverse set of stakeholder comments on how the federal implementation plan and model trading rules might impact the electric power sector.

This was the first event in the RFF/EPRI 2016 Clean Power Plan Seminar Series. The next event, on February 11, 2016, will highlight modeling results of how the Clean Power Plan impacts various states and regions.
