Resetting Environmental Goals: New Source Reviewand Clear Skies


A New Multi-Client Study

Prepared by Global Insight (USA), Inc.


the cost of compliance
The Cost of Compliance

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?

an uncertain future
An Uncertain Future

The political debate will determine emissions limits and the future regulatory environment…

  • The administration favors Clear Skies
  • Environmentalists favor stricter standards and quicker implementation
  • Others favor compromise legislation

…and the impact across the power, natural gas, and coal value chains

in the meantime
In the Meantime…

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.

Resetting Environmental Goals:New Source Reviewand Clear Skies

* * * * *

A new study from Global Insight will explore the regulatory alternatives with a clear vision of the issues, a deep understanding of the energy industry, and a comprehensive scenario-based approach.


Resetting Environmental Goals will…

  • Provide a complete review of all major and proposed regulatory legislation
  • Summarize the technological options available to comply with regulations
  • Assess the impacts of proposed legislation on power, natural gas, and coal markets based on three different scenarios:
    • Timing and technology mix
    • Emission credits and prices
    • Supply and demand
  • Provide a unit-by-unit baseline of installed pollution abatement equipment

Global Insight Scenarios

The Status Quo

  • The implementation of the Clean Air Act and its amendments continues
  • NSR debate remains unresolved, leading to continued uncertainty in energy markets

The Bush Administration Triumphs

  • Clear Skies passes, calling for deeper cuts in allowed emissions relative to the status quo, but spread over a longer period of time
  • NSR regulations are clarified to encourage investment in existing capacity

Scenario Analysis (Continued)

Green Prevails

  • Legislation passes calling for a greater reduction in emissions relative to the status quo, but over a shorter time period
  • NSR regulations are clarified to encourage investment in new capacity at the expense of older facilities
who should participate
Who Should Participate?

Energy Businesses

  • Anticipate impact of changes in emissions requirements and assess compliance needs
  • Plan capacity needs and feasibility of new capital investment for plants
  • Assess competitive position relative to other players

Government Agencies

  • Evaluate economic impact of regulations
  • Prioritize budget allocations to most effectively meet environmental objectives

Financial Institutions

  • Determine impact of regulations on energy markets
  • Identify investment/lending risks and opportunities
study outline
Study Outline

Executive Summary

What Is Driving Environmental Policy?

  • On-going federal-state-regional emissions regulations
  • Potential for Clear Skies and competing proposals to alter emission standardsand timing of implementation
  • New Source Review

Possible Outcomes

  • The status quo
  • The Bush administration’s proposals
  • Reducing emissions sooner, tightening enforcement
study outline continued
Study Outline (Continued)

U.S. Capacity Profile for all U.S. Generating Units

  • Technology, fuel type, and backup fuel capability
  • Installed pollution abatement equipment (PABE)
  • Planned PABE investments

Technology Review

  • Current generating, PABE, and developing technologies

Scenario Impacts on Selected Markets

  • Power, natural gas, coal
  • Emission allowances
