From Carbon Brief:

(The US Department of Energy is attempting to force the parts of the US that operate competitive electricity markets to subsidise coal and nuclear generation. This would “blow up” wholesale power markets, say experts talking to Utility Dive and is “incompatible with sound market economics”, according to the conservative R Street Institute thinktank. It would allow even the oldest coal units to receive a guaranteed rate of return on investments needed to remain open. Like the move to repeal the Clean Power Plan, this effort is likely to take many months and face legal roadblocks).
