New Report Explains Importance of Nation’s Coal Fleet

Washington, D.C.— A report by PA Consulting Group ― “The Contribution of the Coal Fleet to America’s Electricity Grid” ― explains the important role the coal fleet plays in supporting the nation’s electricity grid. ACCCE issued the following statement upon the release of the study.

“This new report shows the coal fleet is essential to maintaining the reliability and resilience of the electricity grid,” said Paul Bailey, President and CEO of ACCCE. “For that reason, we are especially supportive of DOE’s recent recommendation that policymakers need to establish criteria to value attributes, such as on-site fuel, that help protect the grid against low probability events that have extreme consequences. We look forward to working with policymakers to implement DOE’s recommendation.”
