As part of our Clean Power Plan Initiative, ASU has developed a simple spreadsheet tool to help identify potential scenarios for Arizona that would meet the requirements of the EPA’s Clean Power Plan. The spreadsheet was developed in Microsoft Excel and can be accessed from the links below. Each file contains an identical version of the tool with different input assumptions:
1. Business As Usual (xlsx): This is an approximation of Arizona's trajectory with no additional changes due to the CPP. It includes estimates of renewable energy (RE) and energy efficiency (EE) based on existing policy, as well as planned retirements.
2. Example Scenario (xlsx): This provides an illustrative example of a scenario that meets compliance with the EPA’s proposal. It includes certain changes to the Business as Usual inputs such as additional RE, additional EE, reduced exports, and reduced output from remaining coal units.
