The Clean Power Plan requires reductions in carbon pollution from the power sector that’s contributing to climate change. This workshop will explore the technical, environmental and political implications of this landmark legislation.
By 2030, the Clean Power Plan will reduce carbon emissions from power plants by 32 percent below 2005 levels. That’s equal to the annual emissions from 166 million cars or 70 percent of our country’s passenger vehicles. (Source: USEPA)
The Clean Power Plan is a key element of the U.S. strategy to address climate change. CNEE is facilitating a dialogue among Western states, utilities, and stakeholder to help coordinate the development and implementation of compliance plans in the region.
