EPA's Role in the Energy and Climate Partnership of the Americas
“…We can strengthen the foundation of our prosperity and our security and our environment through a new partnership on energy. Our hemisphere is blessed with bountiful resources, and we are all endangered by climate change. Now we must come together to find new ways to produce and use energy so that we can create jobs and protect our planet.
"So today, I'm proposing the creation of a new Energy and Climate Partnership of the Americas that can forge progress to a more secure and sustainable future...”
Seven pillars provide the framework for ECPA activities:
- Energy efficiency
- Renewable energy
- Cleaner fossil fuels
