ACP Statement on NEPA Phase 2 Rule

Press Release

Jul 28 2023

WASHINGTON, D.C., July 28, 2023The American Clean Power Association (ACP) generally supports the Administration’s new guidance intended to help accelerate environmental reviews for clean energy projects and infrastructure. While we are appreciative of the steps the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) has taken to undertake these much-needed reforms, it’s critical that Congress build upon these actions and tackle comprehensive, meaningful reform to improve the efficiency of the permitting process for clean energy projects and infrastructure.

ACP plans to fully review the final National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) Phase 2 rule to better understand how it will impact clean energy permitting. We believe NEPA can be reformed to reduce permitting delays without diminishing the intent of the act to consider the environmental effects of federal actions. ACP looks forward to working with CEQ and Congress as they consider further permitting reforms to ensure they strike the right balance of making the process more efficient and workable, while preserving thorough reviews.
