The EPA policy relies on carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) to reduce GHGs from fossil fuel energy sources. The reality today is that, of the 3,400 coal and gas-fired plants currently operating in the U.S., fewer than 10 have CCS installed. To meet the deadline goal it means churning out more than one new CCS project a day.

The EPA proposal also addresses the use of green hydrogen as a substitute in gas-fired thermal power stations. A reality check shows that the total annual regional production of green hydrogen in 2022 amounted to 691,000 metric tons. That's enough hydrogen to generate 33-megawatt hours of energy, a fraction of what natural-gas-fired plants produce at an average of between 600 and 700 megawatts.
