Future environmental regulations have a significant impact on the U.S. power sector. These regulations will significantly affect fossil fuel prices, the country’s electricity generation portfolio, and emission allowance values.
EVA’s integrated case studies identify a range of future fossil fuel prices under future carbon regulation and highlight the observed trends, versus those trends from other published studies. Companies can apply projected prices in resource modeling to determine their system’s lowest cost generation alternatives under varying future environmental regulation scenarios.
EVA provides both a two year, monthly short term forecast and 20 year, annual long term price forecast. Current emission allowance price forecasts include:
- Title IV SO2
- Annual NOx
- Ozone Season NOx
- RGGI CO2
- National CO2
- CSAPR Group 1 and Group 2 SO2
- CSAPR Group 1 and Group 2 Annual NOx
- CSAPR Group 1 and Group 2 Ozone Season NOx.
- Proposed Carper 3-P
