A New Multi-Client Study
Prepared by Global Insight (USA), Inc.
As President Bush pushes his Clear Skies environmental agenda, the Congressional debate continues to heat up.
New lower emission standards for some major pollutants, an overall change in the timing of reductions, and the possible inclusion of new CO2 targets have all been proposed.
Businesses and power producers will be forced to comply with potential new regulations, but at what cost?
The political debate will determine emissions limits and the future regulatory environment…
…and the impact across the power, natural gas, and coal value chains
Right now, the EPA is making decisions regarding a host of regulations, covering everything from mercury to PM2.5 and ozone.
Some of these policies may go into effect before the debate on Clear Skies is resolved.
The resulting regulations will have a profound impact on electricity, natural gas, and coal markets, regardless of Congress’ actions.
