GLRPPR Sector Resource: Power Partners

Title:
Power Partners

Abstract:
Power PartnersSM is one of 13 trade associations or business groups taking part in the Climate VISION (Voluntary Innovative Sector Initiatives: Opportunities Now) program, a Presidential initiative established on February 12, 2003 to support the President’s goal of reducing the greenhouse gas emissions intensity of the United States’ economy (measured as carbon-equivalent emissions per unit of economic output) by 18 percent between 2002 and 2012. Power Partners have pledged to reduce collectively the power sector's greenhouse gas emissions intensity by an equivalent of 3 to 5 percent (measured as emissions per unit of electricity produced) below 2000-2002 baseline levels, as measured over the 2010-2012 period. This portion of the Climate VISION web site provides a description of the Power Partners program, supporting documents, and the Power Partners Resource Guide.
