In an article about the listening sessions for stakeholders that the Environmental Protection Agency is hosting on greenhouse gas rules, Kyle Danish suggests that "some type of credit" will need to be put in place to incentivize utility and refining facilities to exceed the new source performance standards and invest in improving technology. He goes on to say, "I don’t think that has to be a cap-and-trade program but . . . some sort of flexible program." He adds that such a program could also help facilities that need additional time to comply with the rules.
