Here's how we're working toward a clean, modern energy system that will better protect our health, while boosting the economy.
Reducing energy waste and saving customers money
Why: Our outdated and inefficient energy system is incapable of taking us to into the future.
Protecting our health
Why: Power sector emissions cause numerous health problems – such as asthma and heart attacks – and premature deaths.
How: We're working to advance energy innovation in America, which – along with market forces – is driving power companies to retire dirty coal plants and helping to address pollution that puts our health at risk.
Spurring investments and new business practices
How: We're spurring private investment in energy efficiency and renewables. Through business partnerships, we help forge solutions that cut pollution, boost profit and support job growth.
