EPA’s Climate Rule for Existing Power Plants Under 111(d) – HLS Faculty Analysis and Research

In light of EPA’s announcement today about Obama’s plan to regulate carbon emissions from coal-fired power plants, we wanted to highlight some of the work that HLS faculty have been doing around the issue. Professor Jody Freeman, Director and Founder of ELP, recently wrote a New York Times op-ed “Teaching an Old Law New Tricks” about the legal prospects of using the Clean Air Act to regulate greenhouse gases. Kate Konschnik and Ari Peskoe of the Environmental Policy Initiative published a paper about utilizing energy efficiency programs as part of the sec. 111(d) rule for existing power plants. Lastly, Kate Konschnik guest blogged for Legal Planet  discussing EPA’s statutory authority to issue the sec. 111(d) regulations.
