New Emissions Report to Show States and Utilities Plant Emissions Rates
On May 15, a new report on U.S. power plant emissions from the top 100 power producers will be released, and will also reveal states with the highest and lowest power plant emissions.
The 2013 “Benchmarking Air Emissions of the 100 Largest Electric Power Producers in the United States” report is the ninth to highlight environmental performance and progress in the nation’s electric power sector and analyzes publicly reported data from the 100 largest power producers in the United States.
The report’s comparative analysis of emissions data will be relevant to policymakers considering regulatory approaches; public interest organizations concerned about public health and consumer costs; and financial analysts and investors assessing company risk exposure as power plant emission limits in the U.S. gain more momentum. The findings are pertinent given discussion underway about the roles of governments and the private sector to address climate change.
The Benchmarking report will be available at 9:30 a.m. EST on May 15 on Ceres, The Natural Resources Defense Council, and M.J. Bradley & Associates.
