Carbon Dioxide emissions from power plants is at the lowest level it has been for decades.
Carbon Dioxide emissions from generating electricity has been reduced by 21% since 2005 levels. The government goal is to reduce it by 32% from 2005 levels by 2030. The plan is to make the majority of the reduction through reducing emissions of coal-fired power plants.
The electric power sector's carbon emissions are falling for a number of reasons. Warmer winters have contributed to less emissions. Also, because of the low cost of natural gas, plants have been shifting from coal to natural gas.
