Last week, the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) released an Issue in Focus supplement to its Annual Energy Outlook 2020 (AEO2020). The supplement discusses alternative policy cases that analyze uncertainty around recently enacted legislation and potential changes to laws and regulations. One of these alternative policy cases, the 50% Carbon-Free Generation case, increases requirements in state-level policies to 50% carbon-free generation in all states by 2050, which includes generation for renewables, nuclear, and carbon-capture and sequestration technologies. In this case, several nuclear power plants remain online instead of retiring.
