The Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative – Outcomes of the 2012 RGGI Program Review

Monday, March 4, 2013 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA

 

Description:

Massachusetts and its partners in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative recently completed a review of the program and issued an Updated Model Rule that includes a 45% reduction in the regional cap on carbon dioxide emissions for power plants in the nine participating Northeastern states. The Updated Model Rule contains a number of other significant changes to the RGGI program, including creation of a cost containment reserve to keep emission allowance prices from rising above a certain level, and an adjustment for the unused allowances that have been banked by generators over the past four years. The speakers will discuss these and other outcomes of the RGGI program review.
