Electricity and Its Impacts

Fundamental questions about environmental regulation of the generation, delivery and use of electricity continue to play an integral role in the evolution of the electric power industry.

EPRI addresses electricity and its impacts on the environment by answering fundamental scientific questions about air emissions, climate policy, land and groundwater remediation, water use and grid management. Our research and expertise provides environmental and economic solutions to inform regulators, decision makers, and other stakeholders about a sustainable energy future.

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.
