Ongoing and Recent Projects

Synapse has been preparing for the Clean Power Plan since before the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency released its proposed plan in June 2014. Our ongoing and recent projects related to this work include:

  • Consumer Costs of Low-Emissions Futures: Synapse is preparing a series of briefs on the costs of low-emissions futures, including a scenario in which states achieve emissions reductions even greater than those called for by the Clean Power Plan.
  • Energy Efficiency and the Clean Power Plan: Synapse produced a handbook, factsheet, and webinar related to strategies to mitigate concerns about fairness in energy efficiency programs, a key compliance option for the Clean Power Plan, and how states can leverage the plan to generate additional funds for energy efficiency programs.
  • Bill Impacts of the Clean Power Plan: Synapse modeled various Clean Power Plan compliance options to determine how big an impact strong energy efficiency policies can have on the achievability and affordability of complying with EPA’s rule.
