DOE Assistance on EPA MATS Rule and CSAPR Implementation Options

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is offering technical assistance to state public utility commissioners, generation owner/operators, and utilities on implementing the new and pending EPA air rules affecting the electric utility industry. Examples of typical assistance include technical information on cost and performance of the various power plant pollution retrofit control technologies; technical information on generation, demand-side or transmission alternatives for any replacement power needed for retiring generating units;  and assistance to public utility commissions regarding any regulatory evaluations or approvals they may have to make on utility compliance strategies. 

EPA finalized its Mercury and Air Toxics Standards on December 16, 2011 and also has a pending Cross State Air Pollution Rule. Compliance strategies for both can often be similar or the same.
