Navigating Clean Power Plan Building Blocks


The EPA’s recently published Clean Power Plan (CPP) has left many companies wondering how to correctly and thoroughly assess the impact of these rules on the market, as well as their future planning.  Energy market participants of all types are struggling to determine what analyses can best evaluate all the available options.  Will they need to comply with a rate-based or mass-based approach?  How will they implement all the pieces of the new legislation?  How will the market be impacted?

In addition to flexible modeling of both mass-based and rate-based constraints, AURORAxmp has all the tools required to model each of the CPP’s building blocks individually or in combination.
