“Today’s proposal from EPA represents an opportunity to modernize the electric power system, making it higher performing and more consumer-focused while reducing emissions,” said Malcolm Woolf, senior vice president for policy and government affairs at Advanced Energy Economy (AEE), a national business association. “By allowing a range of ‘outside the fence line’ options for compliance, EPA is giving states leeway to make full use of the dozens of advanced energy technologies that make it possible to cut emissions while improving reliability, reducing costs, increasing competition, and creating new services for consumers. While we are still reviewing EPA’s detailed proposal, AEE and its member companies stand ready to help states find the best approach for their specific resources and circumstances.”
AEE’s Advanced Energy Technologies for Greenhouse Gas Reduction report described 40 specific technologies and services available for states to consider in developing compliance plans for EPA’s standards and detailed their emission reduction and broad electric power system benefits.
