Clean Power Plan Final Rules pre COP 21


EPA’s Clean Power Plan puts states in the driver’s seat

The Clean Power Plan adopted today by EPA builds on progress already being made by states and businesses, and offers a roadmap for further reductions in power sector carbon emissions.

Most importantly, the plan puts states in the driver’s seat to devise innovative strategies to reduce emissions efficiently and cost-effectively. Now it's time for states to work together with businesses and cities to craft the approaches that work best for them.

By giving states the time they need to develop sound strategies – as C2ES and others recommended – the plan enables states to better assess long-term solutions, such as market approaches, renewables and energy efficiency. The plan also includes an innovative incentive program to encourage market approaches and near-term investment in renewables and efficiency, helping the U.S. meet its international emissions goals, and laying the foundation for deeper cuts in the long term.

The next step is for states, working closely with stakeholders, to devise the strategies that work best for them. C2ES will continue to support these efforts, working with state, city and business leaders to identify cost-effective, commonsense solutions that meet our climate goals while ensuring the affordability and reliability of our power supplies.
