Title: Revisiting your NO{sub x} compliance strategy: The impact of Title IV -- Phase 2, Title I -- OTAG, and proposed new NAAQS

Utility strategic planning for NO{sub x} compliance will be significantly influenced by not only the new Title IV Phase 2 rules but also y the pending new ozone non-attainment requirements and the proposed changes to the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS). These regulations will have far-reaching effects on the NO{sub x} compliance strategy for most utilities. A utility`s goal is to develop a compliance plan that builds on the Phase 1 work just completed, while cost-effectively positioning themselves for the deregulated electricity market. With a typically broad mix of generating unit sizes, ages, capacity factors, fuels, and emission rates, a utility`s air emission compliance planning committee must deal with an ever growing mountain of data and options. The compliance planning committee can leverage the knowledge obtained in Phase 1 of the market-based Acid Rain Program to achieve a long-range strategy that will give the utility the flexibility to be competitive in a broad range of market conditions. This paper addresses how this monumental task can be accomplished using innovative application of proven technologies, coupled with the security of conservative risk management.
