Clean Energy-Environment Guide to Action [PDF]
Abstract: The Clean Energy-Environment Guide to Action identifies and describes 16 clean energy policies and strategies that states have used to meet their clean energy objectives. It describes how states are successfully expanding the role of clean energy in the U.S. energy system and shares the experience and lessons learned from successful state clean energy policies. EPA developed the Guide to Action to help states learn from each other as they develop their own clean energy programs and policies. State energy offices, public utility commissions, environmental regulators, other state policymakers, and their stakeholders can use the Guide to analyze and implement policies and programs that effectively integrate clean energy into a low-cost, clean, reliable energy system for their state. States participating in the Clean Energy-Environment State Partnership will use the Guide to Action to develop a Clean Energy-Environment State Action Plan for using new or existing policies and programs to increase the use of cost-effective clean energy.

Is EPA's Performance Track Running Off the Rails?
Abstract: Since its creation in 2000 as a program that relaxes regulatory oversight on companies with exemplary environmental performance, the U.S. EPA?s Performance Track has come under fire for bending over backward in favor of polluters. When first enacted, Performance Track was touted as a voluntary means to improve habitat protection, water and energy use, and waste reduction?areas over which the EPA has little regulatory authority. But moves to abolish the reporting that could help improve pollution technologies, together with changes that might allow companies to break their promises, have placed Performance Track under scrutiny.
