Carbon dioxide regulation under the Clean Air Act: where are we now, and where are we going?

CARBON DIOXIDE REGULATION UNDER THE CLEAN AIR ACT: 
WHERE ARE WE NOW, AND WHERE ARE WE GOING?

February 11, 2011

12:00 – 1:30 p.m. Eastern Time 

OVERVIEW
As the EPA forges ahead with regulation of carbon dioxide and its “greenhouse gas” (GHG) equivalents under the Clean Air Act (through the issuance of its BACT guidance and a focus on fossil-fuel-fired electricity generators), this webinar will explore the 

nuances of how BACT permitting of GHG emissions is likely to be implemented. The BACT guidance has drawn commentary from a wide array of sources, and a great deal of uncertainty remains as to how permittees and state regulators are to apply 
the guidance on a case-by-case basis. Our presenters will walk through a variety of considerations and potential scenarios and will provide their perspectives on the options and obstacles that the regulated community should consider in the months and years to come.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
• Attorneys representing utility clients and suppliers to power plants 
• Finance and investment professionals
• Government officials and environmental staff members
• Managers of strategic planning
• Project developers
• Public utilities and regulatory staffers 
• Renewable and cleantech project developers 
• Siting and permitting attorneys
• Utility executives with renewable energy responsibilities
• Utility resource planners
• Utility strategists

LEARNING OUTCOMES
• Recognize how past and pending legislation and litigation led to the current 
regulatory environment
• Examine how new GHG rules are merging into existing Clean Air Act regulations
• Assess the practical considerations and implications of the mandatory reporting 
rule, the tailoring rule, and the BACT guidance on air permitting strategy
• Categorize the triggers and timing of GHG air permitting rules 
• Appraise the deal-related factors that arise from these emerging regulations and 
other GHG reduction incentive
