Energy + Environment is a vital partner and supporter in the Sustainability Community in Atlanta. Recently it sponsored a luncheon hosted by GreenLaw and Southeastern Alliance for Clean Energy (SACE). The luncheon was a presentation by the Union of Concerned Scientists discussing their report "Ripe for Retirement". The report assessed the top coal plants that are polluters and too expensive to retrofit. The report promotes the conversation that these plants are the ones that are ready for retirement.
