Federal greenhouse gas regulations help topics

What are the U.S. EPA’s federal greenhouse gas regulations?

The U.S. EPA is currently in the process of establishing greenhouse gas regulations that would limit carbon dioxide emissions for new power plants and existing power plants, as part of the Clean Air Act.

The EPA first re-proposed its regulations in September 2013 to limit CO2 emissions from all new natural gas and coal-fired power plants. Closely on its heels, the agency also released the regulation’s counterpart in June 2014 to limit CO2 emissions from existing power plants.

On Aug. 3, President Obama unveiled the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's much-anticipated final regulations to limit CO2 emissions from existing power plants. Learn more about the company's response.
