SURVIVING A REGULATORY GAME CHANGER
DTC’s scrutinized each of the +5,000 pages of the CPP to develop a proprietary dispatch and compliance model to determine the impact on power generation through 2030 and beyond.
This report will allow you to:
- Anticipate likely compliance paths for States under three permissible categories
- Determine the role of renewables in the U.S. power grid
- Discover whether natural gas will act as base-load generation’s saving grace
- Identify the severity of coal’s demise
The impact of the coal market will be unprecedented:
- Coal demand at U.S. utilities could fall to 350 mm tons under a‘worst case’ scenario
- Certain states can comply without any adverse impact on coal burn, while other states face accelerated coal plant closures
- The pain is not evenly distributed – certain coal basins fare better than others
The EPA dramatically reduced its exposure to litigation in the final rule, so join the states and utilities in preparing for probable implementation today.

Natgas prices 10% below EIA projections could cause excess trading allowances for the first compliance period under a mass based system
A $10/ton CO2 allowance price applied nationwide would reduce coal consumption by 40.2mm tons in 2022
+70 GW of renewable capacity which would have counted towards compliance under the proposal are excluded in the final rule
