The EPA released the final Affordable Clean Energy (ACE) Rule in June 2019. The ACE Rule replaces the 2015 Clean Power Plan and establishes emissions guidelines for states to utilize when crafting plans to limit carbon dioxide at existing coal-fired power plants. Our panelists will discuss how the ACE Rule differs from the Clean Power Plan in terms of statutory construction, delegation of authority and flexibility to the states. Discussion will include anticipated legal challenges as well as judicial review timelines.
