Benchmarking Air Emissions of the 100 Largest Electric Power Producers in the United States 2015

This analysis discloses CO2, NOx, SO2, and mercury emissions from the top 100 electric power producers in the U.S. These top 100 power producers accounted for 85% of the electricity generated in 2013. Several power producers in the Southeast have reduced CO2 emissions by a third or more since 2000. In addition, the report finds that the electric industry has cut overal NOx and SO2 emissions even as overall electricity generation and GDP have increased.
