  5. Joint WIEB, WIRAB, and CREPC Meeting • Berkeley Lab is pleased to announce the release of a new report, “Reading the Tea Leaves: How Utilities in the West Are Managing Carbon Regulatory Risk in their Resource Plans,” prepared at the request of the Western Interstate Energy Board.

  6. Joint WIEB, WIRAB, and CREPC Meeting • Uncertainty in the nature and timing of future greenhouse gas regulations poses substantial financial risks for electric utility ratepayers and shareholders. Long-term resource planning provides a potential framework within which these risks can be systematically assessed and managed. In this study, we examine the current treatment of carbon regulatory risk through a comparative analysis of the most-recent long-term resource plans filed by fifteen major utilities in the Western U.S.
