Over the past decade, electric utilities in the Southeast have reduced carbon emissions primarily through changes in generation –– but is it enough to address the climate crisis?

Despite a recent downward trend, Southern Alliance for Clean Energy (SACE) energy policy experts conclude in the soon-to-be-released “Tracking Decarbonization in the Southeast: 2019 Generation & CO2  Emissions Report” that carbon emissions from power generation in the Southeast are expected to flatten under current utility plans.

Join us for a webinar next Thursday, August 1, at 1 p.m. ET, where we’ll dive deeper into these trends and forecasts in the electric power sector and ask the question, “Will this be enough to keep Southeast utilities on track to meet their climate goals and address utilities’ contributions to the climate crisis?”

WHAT: “Tracking Decarbonization in the Southeast” webinar
WHEN: Thursday, August 1, 1 p.m. ET
WHERE: Virtual:
WHY: Under current Southeast utility plans, carbon emissions reductions are flat-lining. Emissions reductions need to accelerate to mitigate the worst of the climate crisis and protect our communities across our region.
