EPA is expected to announce very soon a new standard for ground level ozone, a smog-forming pollutant. Referred to by some in industry as “the most expensive regulation ever,” the controversial rule will likely reduce the existing standard from 75 parts per billion (ppb) to 65 or 70 ppb. There is significant disagreement over the likely benefits, costs and impact on public health and the economy of such a change.
Join our expert panel as they discuss the proposed standards, their impact on a dynamic energy sector and how they fit within the broader regulatory context.
Complimentary breakfast will be served at 8am. The program will begin at 8:30am. This event will NOT be live webcast.

Q: What role does energy production play in the creation of ozone?
Q: What are the costs and benefits of the potential final rule?
Q: How will the Ozone rule’s attainability be impacted by other regulatory efforts such as the Clean Power Plan, Renewable Fuel and CAFE standards?
Q: How feasible would reductions be for the energy sector and what are the implications of those reductions?
