This profile presents data for the electric power generating industry important for understanding the context of the analyses presented in this document. The majority of this profile is excerpted from Chapter A3 of the Economic and Benefits Analysis for the Proposed Section 316(b) Phase II Existing Facilities Rule (the 'EBA'). For more information on aspects of the industry that may influence nature and magnitude of economic impact of the Proposed Section 316(b) Phase II Existing Facilities Rule, see Chapter A3 of the EBA. The electric power industry is one of the most extensively studied industries. The Energy Information Administration (EIA), among others, publishes a multitude of reports, documents, and studies on an annual basis. This profile is not intended to duplication those efforts. Rather, this profile compiles, summarizes, and presents those industry data that are important in the context of the proposed Phase II rule. For more information of general concepts, trends, and developments in the electric power industry, the last section of this profile, 'References,' presents a select list of other publications on the industry.
