Renewable Energy Vision

On August 3rd, 2015, President Barak Obama and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced the final version of the Clean Power Plan (CPP). The CPP sets the first national standards to address carbon pollution from existing power plants and demonstrates to the global community that the United States is willing to take action to combat climate change. The CPP uses Section 111(d) of the Clean Air Act (CAA) to set state-specific carbon dioxide (CO2) emission reduction targets with an overall nationwide reduction of 32 percent below 2005 levels by 2030. While setting these targets, the CPP is designed to allow states maximum flexibility in how they achieve their individual objectives.

March 4 -- President Obama on Monday nominated Gina McCarthy to head the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Ernest Moniz as the next Energy secretary. At an event Monday at the White House, Obama heralded the picks as a “great team” that would address his “top priorities going forward.” "These two over here, they're going to be making sure that we're investing in American energy, that we're doing everything that we can to combat the threat of climate change, that we're going to be creating jobs and economic opportunity in the first place," said the president. >>View Article

February 25 -- The Obama administration and Congress need to enact an ambitious, practical energy policy. They can start with a national standard for renewable energy. Many states have laws that require utilities to invest more in wind, solar and biomass energy and other forms of renewable power. The laws are getting results, but their competing rules and incentives create a tug of war among states for investors. A federal standard would help level the playing field among states, give investors greater market certainty and create jobs. >>View Article
