Description
 
U.S. policymakers have considered and deliberated on several policy designs that could potentially reduce energy-related carbon emissions. In his 2011 State of the Union address, President Obama proposed the concept of a Clean Energy Standard (CES) that would result in 80% of U.S. electricity generation from clean energy sources by 2035. In March 2012, the Clean Energy Standard Act of 2012 (S. 2146) was introduced in the Senate, with the primary goal of reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from the U.S. electricity sector, which represents approx. 41% of total U.S. CO2 emissions. Generally, the approach used to achieve this goal is to require certain utility companies to source a portion of their electricity generation from qualified clean energy generators. Utilities located in either Alaska or Hawaii are exempted from CES requirements. contents of this report: Introduction; Policy Design Elements; EIA Analysis of S. 2146; Potential Areas for Further Clarification; Policy Question: How to Define Clean Energy? Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
