The document discusses the results of a cost analysis that was performed to assess the reasonableness of emission credits for cogeneration facilities under new source performance standards limiting SO2 emissions from industrial-commercial-institutional steam generating units. Emission credits would allow a cogeneration system to achieve a lower percent reduction in emissions or to meet a higher emission limit in proportion to the increased overall efficiency achieved by the cogeneration system. The analysis examined two common types of cogeneration, steam generator-based and combined cycle systems, and analyzed the incremental cost effectiveness of not providing emission credits versus providing emission credits for two regulatory alternatives: standards based on the use of low sulfur fuels and standards requiring a percent reduction in SO2 emissions.
