    INDUSTRY HIGHLIGHTS


    Can a nationwide conversation ignite a new era of nuclear energy innovation?
    The Energy Collective
    Experts from across the United States will gather soon for a unique, nationwide dialogue on the future of nuclear energy. Simultaneous collaborative workshops in six cities will bring together more than 120 participants to craft a new vision for the role of nuclear energy in 21st century energy systems and generate innovative solutions to some of the toughest challenges facing the nuclear energy sector today. In many ways, the nuclear energy industry in America is at a crossroads. The existing fleet of 99 reactors, which provide nearly one-fifth of America’s electricity and 60 percent of our low-carbon power, is aging. Reactor operators must decide whether or not to pursue license extensions and life-extending retrofits that could keep the fleet operating for decades more.

    Supreme Court review of mercury rules could impact Ohio
    Midwest Energy News
    A case currently before the Supreme Court could decide whether coal-fired power plants can escape federal rules for mercury and other hazardous air emissions. The case has important consequences for Ohio and other parts of the Midwest. On the one hand, utilities and other challengers argue that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency unreasonably failed to consider costs in determining whether the regulations are appropriate.

    Diversification and global competition drives renewable energy attractiveness
    The FINANCIAL
    A focus on energy diversification and increasing competitive pressure on both governments and investors is driving renewable energy attractiveness and bringing new investment destinations to the fore, according to EY’s latest Renewable energy country attractiveness index. Ben Warren, EY’s Global Power & Utilities Corporate Finance Leader and RECAI Chief Editor, says: "Ongoing oil price volatility and geopolitical challenges continue to emphasize the importance of energy diversification as a means of achieving greater energy security. Renewables are becoming an increasingly important part of the broader generation mix for many countries, resulting in a number of markets climbing our attractiveness index. Global investment in renewables topped U.S. $300 billion in 2014, exceeding investment in new nuclear and fossil fuel generation."

    FERC's work on the clean power plan
    POWER
    One of the most controversial issues facing the energy world today is how our electric sector will respond to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed Clean Power Plan. If finalized, the CPP would, under Section 111(d) of the Clean Air Act, require states to significantly reduce carbon dioxide emissions from existing power plants. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission is not an environmental regulator, and is not tasked with writing the final rule — that is clearly the EPA’s responsibility. And FERC is not responsible for developing implementation plans — that is the states’ responsibility. But FERC will have an essential role to play as the CPP is implemented.
