January 23, 2023

NRDC and Evergreen Action launched a report, “Powering Toward 100 Percent Clean Power by 2035,” with new modeling finding that the most effective action the Biden administration can take to tackle power sector carbon pollution is to set ambitious carbon pollution standards for new and existing power plants under the Clean Air Act. Specifically, the report shows that strong standards, along with the Inflation Reduction Act, could cut power-sector carbon emissions 77 percent below 2005 levels by the end of this decade, and keep the U.S. on track to 100 percent clean electricity by 2035.
