A Study of Delays in the Construction of Fossil Power Plants
In the report, researchers identified fossil power plants in the U.S. that have experienced construction delays due to environmental reasons and tried to determine common causes or sources of the delays. Researchers found that water quality, air quality, environmental impact statements, siting and zoning considerations have all contributed to delays, with water and air quality concerns contributing to major environmental delay factors for the plants studied. Setbacks resulted from activities at local, state, and federal levels of government, with the actions of no one agency in particular predominating.
