UCS Report: A Risky Proposition

George Cavros | March 22, 2011 | Webinars

The Southern Alliance for Clean Energy (SACE) invites you to join experts from the Union plantof Concerned Scientists for a webinar presentation on their newly released report entitled A Risky Proposition: The Financial Hazards of New Investments in Coal. This webinar is your opportunity to directly engage with experts and learn about emerging energy research.

Acrossthe United States, the electric power sector is placing new bets on an old technology—coal-fired power plants. Utilities and other electricity producers are poised to invest heavily in retrofitting their old plants or in building new ones. Each major retrofit or new plant represents an enormous long-term financial commitment to coal power. But as discussed in a new report by the Union of Concerned Scientists, current economic, technological, and policy trends make such commitments exceedingly risky.

We invite you to join us on March 22 from 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM for a briefing and open discussion with report author Barb Freese andother UCS experts.
