Regulation & Policy
Mounting pressure is placed on the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to enact reforms in East and Midwest power transmission areas to create stronger capacity markets to strengthen electric grid reliability. Industry has been pushing for regulatory changes ahead…
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has recognized the key role played by combined heat and power (CHP) in reducing greenhouse gas emissions from energy supply. Industry association COGEN Europe consequentially calls on EU member states to reconsider cuts…
Power producers in the United States like American Electic Power, Duke Energy and Southern Co. must abide by federal limits on mercury and other power plant plants, a U.S. appeals court ruled, upholding the EPA's Mercury and Air Toxic Standards…
Dangerous levels of greenhouse gas emissions could be mitigated by replacing existing carbon-intensive coal plants with modern gas-fired combined cycle plants, according to new findings from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The report shows that gas power generation without…
Japanese ministers voted today to reinstate some of the country's nuclear power plants in a bid to reduce crippling gas import costs for power producers. The government made no comment on how many plants will be restarted, but the new plan is hoped…
The European Commission's new rule book on what constitutes state aid in the energy sector recognizes a potential need to support conventional capacity to balance intermittent power output from renewables in the EU energy mix.
Cogeneration in Spain could become a causality of current changes in electricity legislation, with an estimated 6 GW at risk of closure. Proposed reductions of the CHP tariff will immediately drive roughly half of the existing capacity into negative gross…
The German government and the European Commission have ended a lengthy dispute over exemptions and rebates to industry from paying the full levy charged for subsidizing renewable energy. A compromise allows firms to pay less than the 20% share of…
A proposed reform of Germany's renewable energy act (EEG) is set to hit manufacturers with substantial extra costs for energy which may lead to closures, the industry warns. The renewables levy will rise to €77/MWh in 2020 from currently €62.40/MWh…
Reviewing the EU Energy Efficiency Directive by July, the Commission is likely to set more stringent targets after the European parliament voted for 40% improvements in efficiency by 2030. "The parliament is expecting an ambitious energy efficiency target from us,"…
