Edison Electric Institute is lobbying US Climate Change legislation with mixed policy positions. Edison Electric Institute has stated support for a transition towards inclusion of trading schemes and within the US Clean Power Plan. Additionally, Edison Electric have offered support to the CAFE that it has worked with the US Environmental Protection Agency on the Clean Power Plan to 'to minimize the costs to customers and to protect the reliability of the electricity system'. However, in 2016, whilst standards and GHG that the legal stay on Clean Power Plan will not impact the move towards clean energy, funded the standards on light duty vehicle. This aligns with their strong support, an organization challenging the plan in court. In 2018, Edison Electric continued to for the electrification of transportation. However, while the organisation supports the electrification of transport then, it does not appear to fully support the decarbonization of the power sector. In 2018 EEI President Thomas Kuhn sough insights about ‘easing barriers’ the Clean Power Plan and argued its replacement – the Affordable Clean Energy rule - required to energy infrastructure including transmission lines and natural gas pipelines, and in 2019 Edison Electric were in favour to meet the standards. In the run-up to COP21, Edison Electric Institute called on countries to of President Trump’s Executive Orders facilitating the development of pipelines and energy infrastructure. Prior to this in 2016, Edison Electric appears to have been instrumental in orchestrating and it has also supported the a nation-wide inclusion of trading schemes and within the US Clean Power Plan.
