The Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Clean Power Plan (CPP) will usher in changes not only for state regulators and utilities, but also for industrial energy consumers. At the Industrial Energy Technology Conference, Ken Colburn provided insight into the rule, addressed potential concerns about cost and reliability, and highlighted the role of industrial energy efficiency.With the objective of reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 30 percent below 2005 levels, the CPP offers a unique opportunity for a wide variety of stakeholders—not only regulators—to work together to rethink power sector regulation in their state or region. Mr. Colburn encourages industry representatives to take a seat at the table with utilities and energy, air, and environmental regulators to voice their wishes and concerns. He also recommends finding out more about the compliance plan evolving in their respective state and exploring how it treats energy efficiency, renewable energy, distributed generation, and demand response. By joining the discussion and promoting energy efficiency, industrial energy consumers can contribute to an approvable, least-cost compliance plan.
