Peabody releases statement of support for new Affordable Clean Energy rule
Published by Claire Cuddihy,
Peabody supports the adoption of the Affordable Clean Energy (ACE) rule as a replacement for the Clean Power Plan as a significant step in ensuring reliable, resilient and affordable electricity across the US.
ACE strengthens regulatory and investment certainty using a sensible and legally defensible ‘within the fenceline’ approach to improve efficiencies of existing power plants. The proposed rule offers technically feasible and appropriate measures with the potential to deliver cost-effective, achievable and practical solutions for reducing emissions while minimising disruptions to electricity generation. Furthermore, ACE offers individual states greater flexibility in the development and timing of state implementation plans, avoiding a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to managing distinct and diverse needs.
Peabody has long advocated for technology solutions to meet the three-part goal of energy security, economic progress and environmental solutions and we believe ACE satisfies these objectives.
