APPA offers spreadsheet, webinar on calculating EPA carbon dioxide targets for states
Originally published July 16, 2014
The American Public Power Association (APPA) has developed a spreadsheet tool to help its members determine—for each state—the interim and final carbon dioxide emission rates proposed by the Environmental Protection Agency in its proposed New Source Performance Standards for existing fossil-fuel power plants. APPA also is offering a webinar on July 18, from 2-3:30 p.m. Eastern time, to review the assumed NSPS targets set by EPA, go over how the assumptions were calculated, and help members use the spreadsheet tool. Registration is required but the webinar is free but is open only to APPA member utilities. A link to the spreadsheet tool is posted on APPA's website.
Based on APPA’s review of EPA’s published data, a number of additional ratios to describe target impacts have been calculated on the spreadsheet, said Alex Hofmann, APPA’s energy and environmental services manager, who developed the calculator. APPA will update the calculator as needed and welcomes feedback from members (email AHofmann@PublicPower.org).
APPA members can register for the webinar online. All you need to attend is a phone and a computer with Internet access. For questions and assistance with registration, please contact Meghan Riley (202/467-2919; MRiley@PublicPower.org).
