The energy industry is currently going through an unprecedented time of change and transition. As utilities, governments, and businesses prepare for new opportunities and challenges, it is important to consider change management approaches and how to minimize risk and stakeholder impacts.
On June 2, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released a long-anticipated plan to establish carbon standards for existing fossil fuel generators. The proposed rule, titled the Clean Power Plan, aims to reduce carbon emissions from the power sector by 30 percent nationally below 2005 levels.
The Clean Power Plan released by the EPA recently can help make American businesses more efficient, competitive, and innovative. The plan will improve public health and the environment, but it can also strengthen our economy.
