The Department of Environmental Protection has proposed regulations to limit Greenhouse Gas Emissions to comply with the Global Warming Solutions Act, in response to the SJC’s decision in Kain v. DEP, and in response to Executive Order 569. This EBC Energy and Climate Change Program will examine the two proposed regulations that directly affect the electric power generation sector, namely the proposed cap on greenhouse gas emissions from Massachusetts electric generating units at 310 CMR 7.74, and the new Clean Energy Standard (CES) regulations at 310 CMR 7.75. Speakers will include representatives of DEP, environmental groups, and groups representing electric generators and suppliers.
General Continuing Education Certificates are awarded by the EBC for this program (3.0 training contact hours). Please select this option during registration if you wish to receive a certificate.
