Electric utilities face unprecedented uncertainties from new environmental regulations and future energy and climate policies. Outcomes of these regulatory and policy actions will drive decisions about retrofitting plants with additional or new equipment or retiring them. Further uncertainty is added by changing fuel markets; increasing renewable resources; cost, performance, and availability of key generation and emission control technologies; uncertain economic and demand growth; and availability of capital. To meet these challenges, the Electric Power Research Institute’s (EPRI) Energy and Environmental Policy Analysis and Company Strategy program develops and applies modeling tools to provide public- and private-sector decision makers with fundamental insights regarding the cost and performance of policy alternatives, both for the electric sector and the overall economy.
