EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

This report provides an independent analysis of the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Power Plan proposal, released on June 2, 2014. The new rule aims to reduce CO2 emissions from the US electric power sector by 30% below 2005 levels by 2030 through emission reduction guidelines. The proposed rule will cover roughly 3,000 electricity generating units at 1,000 power plants across the US. This report helps Compliance Officers and heads of EH&S, as well as directors of advisory services, to understand the requirements and next steps of the Clean Power Plan. The report also outlines the advisory opportunities across areas such as policy design and demand-side energy efficiency.
