    INDUSTRY HIGHLIGHTS


    Retiring plants placed on life support to preserve reliability
    Midwest Energy News
    Scores of coal-fired power plants have been retired and taken off-line in recent years, and coal plant retirements are likely to continue or accelerate as deadlines for federal pollution regulations loom and states respond to the recently proposed EPA carbon reduction plan. Clean energy advocates and environmentalists typically cheer the closing of coal plants. But sometimes power plants are crucial to providing stability on the grid, even if their electricity is not needed to meet demand.

    EPA hits nuclear power with kryptonite
    Forbes
    James Conca writes: "I like the proposed carbon emissions rules from EPA. They address the real issue of balancing our energy mix and may be the only way to move forward in the absence of Congressional leadership. But EPA has gone a little wild with their latest proposal. This new proposed emissions rule is for nuclear power plants. An operating nuclear power plant has very low emissions of any kind except water vapor. No carbon emissions and almost no radioactivity emissions."
