Last week, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) dominated the news with the release of its draft Clean Power Proposal, which mandates carbon reductions from power plants. While there is a federal emissions limit for any new power plant built in the United States, this is the first federal action to regulate emissions of existing plants. The EPA’s proposal mandates an emissions reduction from the power sector by 30 percent below 2005 levels.
