Addressing a September 26 Bipartisan Policy Center event, Deputy Assistant to the President for Energy and Climate Change Heather Zichal praised the recently proposed greenhouse gas regulations for new power plants. She commented that the Environmental Protection Agency has begun a similarly robust engagement process for emissions rules for existing plants. She praised agency efforts to meet goals set up by the president’s Climate Action Plan, including the Interior Department holding its first competitive offshore wind lease sale and the Energy Department proposing energy efficiency standards.
