Learn how a new wave of cleaner power plants will replace 30,000 megawatts of planned decommissioning of legacy coal-based power plants.

The new found abundance of natural gas in the United States has created an unprecedented opportunity to enable a new wave of cleaner power plants to replace 30,000 megawatts of planned decommissioning of legacy coal-based power plants affecting over 30 million households. The meeting will provide the viewpoints of two entities - PJM, and Emberclear, a developer of innovative energy projects currently working in PJM on the development of large scale combined cycle generating plants.

PJM will discuss the impacts of abundant, low-priced natural gas and environmental regulations, including the Clean Power Plan, on its operations, markets, and planning. PJM will highlight the current dominance of natural gas generation with respect to its Interconnection Queue. Emberclear will highlight some of the projects that they are currently developing in PJM, as well as what has attracting them to PA for development projects.
