ABSTRACT
The article discusses the impact of the federal climate legislation on the energy infrastructure of the U.S. It mentions the key factors that will drive the new energy, including the mix of energy generation in different regions, the availability of renewable resources and the success of carbon dioxide capture. It notes that the reliance of the U.S. on fossil fuels has led to an increase in greenhouse gas emissions. Enactment of a cap-and-trade legislation would require power generators and industries to purchase emissions allowances.
