Analysis Finds CEPP or Carbon Fee Key to Biden's 2030 Clean Power Goal
An article in Inside EPA outlines recent RFF analysis about the emissions reductions potential and cost effects of active reconciliation climate proposals.
"New research is suggesting that Democrats must supplement extended tax credits for clean energy with at least one of two contentious policies in their pending budget reconciliation package -- a clean electricity program or carbon tax -- to ensure achievement of the Biden administration’s 2030 target of 80 percent clean power. The finding surfaces in an Oct. 7 Resources for the Future (RFF) issue brief focused more explicitly on the potential for combinations of greenhouse gas policies to curb emissions."
