The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently released its long-anticipated proposal for regulating greenhouse gas emissions from existing power plants. The proposal seeks to create a fair and flexible regime for reducing power sector greenhouse gas emissions—it attempts to promote renewables and natural gas without unduly penalizing coal. But the proposal punts on some important implementation questions and many observers, overwhelmed by the sheer volume of documents associated with the proposal, have been uncertain where to focus their attention.
Join McDermott Will & Emery for this complimentary webinar, led by the former top-ranking Clean Air Act lawyer for EPA Region 2, Jacob Hollinger, as we demystify EPA’s proposal and identify key topics for power plant owners, state governments, renewable energy developers and other interested parties to address during the public comment period.
The webinar will summarize EPA’s proposal and also cover:
- The role of RGGI - why states will be pushed to copy it
- Open questions about renewables, state plans and trading
- Legal vulnerabilities, and how EPA might cure them
- Tactics for influencing EPA
