Featured Research Air Impacts Water Impacts Land Management Policy Impacts Resources

Electric utilities face unprecedented uncertainties from a broad range of air, land, water, climate, renewable and clean energy regulations and policies as well as dynamic fuel markets and fluctuating electricity demand and economic growth. Outcomes of these actions will drive decisions about technology retrofits or plant retirements. EPRI’s research integrates analyses of critical energy, environmental and economic issues as an information source for existing and emerging energy and environmental policies, regulatory compliance options and generation planning strategies.

Modeling tools supply fundamental insights on the cost and performance of policy impacts and alternatives. These insights inform company investment decisions and strategies for compliance with energy and environmental policies and regulations, accounting for changing fuel and electricity markets. EPRI research offers comprehensive data and comparative assessments of generation technology costs and performance in the context of generation planning needs that can also inform asset investment decisions.
