RGGI and New and Existing Coal

Client:

Synapse was retained by UCS to write a report that describes the potential for new and existing coal plants, located just outside the boundaries of RGGI, to dilute the initiative's environmental objectives. Construction of new coal plants and upgrades and construction of new transmission lines could increase the imported quantity of coal-fired electricity into the RGGI region.

Status: 
Project completed December 2008.
