Kyle Danish will explain ‘what’s in the cards’ for the Trump Administration’s proposed replacement for the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Power Plan (CPP): The Affordable Clean Energy (ACE) rule. He will discuss the status of the CPP and run through the key elements of the proposed ACE rule. He will provide perspective on likely flashpoints for controversy and litigation and address the potential impacts on coal and coal-fired electric generation. Kyle’s discussion will also be put in the broader context of the evolution of greenhouse gas regulations affecting the power sector.
