Aegis extends this brief regulatory update:.
Proposed Affordable Clean Energy (ACE) Rule
Earlier this month, EPA proposed the Affordable Clean Energy (ACE) Rule, which would establish emissions guidelines for state-run programs designed to address greenhouse gas emissions from existing coal-fired power plants. This Rule is dramatically different from the currently-stayed Clean Power Plan in several ways, such as it focuses only on coal-powered plants (rather than the entire energy sector), and in that it allows states to set their own standards that meet the federal guideline rather than setting a federal standard.
EPA is accepting comments on the proposed rule for 60 days, see their website https://www.epa.gov/stationary-sources-air-pollution/affordable-clean-energy-rule-proposal-how-comment for more details.
September is a busy month for us here at Aegis Environmental! Aegis is co-hosting an Air seminar with Williams Mullen on September 12th, with topics including recent changes to Air Regulations and the practical impacts of those changes, Clean Air Act litigation developments, Project Emissions Accounting for permitting and for compliance, and steering regulatory and source changes through your environmental management system. More information on the seminar is available if you contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
