A Fresh Outlook on the Clean Power Plan

Project completed 2016

The DC Circuit Court of Appeals brought the Clean Power Plan back into the spotlight in May 2016, making the unusual move to hear the pending case in front of the entire nine-judge circuit. Synapse has highlighted the potential benefits of implementing the Clean Power Plan since its release last summer. During a webinar on May 26, 2016m Synapse Senior Associate Sarah Jackson and Kate Konschnik of Harvard Law School’s Environmental Policy Initiative discussed the outlook for the Clean Power Plan, including why planning continues for a low-carbon future and what some states and utilities have been up to since the Clean Power Plan was put on hold by the Supreme Court earlier this year.
