Title: ●Emission Guidelines for Greenhouse Gas Emissions From Fossil Fuel-Fired Existing Electric Generating Units 

On January 19, 2021, the D.C. Circuit Court issued an opinion vacating the Affordable Clean Energy Rule (found at 40 CFR part 60, subpart UUUUa) - the previously applicable emission guidelines setting forth greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions from existing electric generating units (i.e. EGUs). The EPA is working on a new set of emission guidelines to establish a BSER for existing fossil fuel-fired EGUs to direct States in regulating GHGs within their borders.
