Regulating Carbon: Impacts of the EPA’s Clean Power Plan Options

View the Study Table of Contents 

As the Scenario Planning Service's (SPS) key deliverable, this in-depth report defines and tracks the critical assumptions behind our medium- and long-term views on worldwide oil and natural gas supply, demand, and price projections.  It lays out the alternative scenarios around some of those key assumptions, detailing high and low boundary cases that reflect a plausible range of price uncertainty.

This year’s Guidebook illustrates the importance of examining alternative scenarios, as the global oil market (along with and many international gas markets) has experienced a major price collapse, broadly in line with the low case scenario that we have put forward for the past several years. Changes to the North American gas outlook have been less dramatic, as Henry Hub prices are still awaiting the demand surge to match the increase in low cost supply.

The Guidebook and SPS's other features provide the insight necessary to manage your business in 2015 and beyond.

PIRA's Regulating Carbon: Impact of the EPA’s Clean Power Plan Options provides an in-depth review of the implications of the proposed power sector regulations under Section 111 of the Clean Air Act.  The study’s expert analysis — delivered through a written report, webinar, and expansive database — offers an objective, unbiased view: it isn’t done to support any particular stakeholder position, nor does it utilize the models used by EPA with EPA assumptions. 

Outcomes can vary greatly given the flexibility the EPA is offering states in coming up with plans to comply with the rule.  How they choose to comply — on a rate or mass basis; solo or through a multi-state program; covering all plants or just existing units; etc. — will be critical for power, gas, coal and renewables markets.  Choices cannot be assessed in a vacuum, as the decision of neighboring states can significantly impact the incentives to reduce emissions, re-dispatch coal and gas generation, build new generation, and import/export power.
