Join the Bipartisan Policy Center and Great Plains Institute for a one-day workshop to discuss implementation options for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Final Clean Power Plan in the Midcontinent region. 
 

The EPA released its final Clean Power Plan on August 3, 2015, including national, technology-specific emission rate standards and state-specific emission goals. States now have to develop and submit implementation plans.

 

States and stakeholders in the region have been working to evaluate the policy options available to states for inclusion in state plans. In the Midcontinent region, state officials have been active in the Midcontinent States Environmental and Energy Regulators (MSEER) group, with support from experts at the Bipartisan Policy Center and Great Plains Institute. In addition, the Midwestern Power Sector Collaborative, convened by the Great Plains Institute, brings state regulators and industry and environmental stakeholders together to explore and engage on these policy issues.

 

This workshop will gather states, stakeholders, and experts, including those participating in MSEER and the Power Sector Collaborative, to explore policy pathways for achieving compliance under the final Clean Power Plan as well as opportunities and challenges for multistate collaboration.

 

This event will also be webcast on the Bipartisan Policy Center's website.
