On February 14, 2006, the Climate VISION partners held a workshop to hear from industry sectors on activities they have undertaken to reduce energy usage and greenhouse gas emissions intensity. The purpose of the workshop was to provide an opportunity for current and prospective industry partners to share experiences and lessons learned through case studies and to explore new opportunities for collaboration. The one-day event was hosted by the Edison Electric Institute (EEI) and featured remarks by EEI President Thomas Kuhn and American Chemistry Council President Jack Gerard and a keynote by Department of Energy Under Secretary David Garman. Seven Climate VISION partners made presentations covering a range of activities and projects, from light-weighting automobiles and carbon sequestration to reforestation and biorefining.
The Climate VISION program is a public-private partnership program established in February 2003 to support President Bush's goal of reducing the greenhouse gas emissions intensity of the U.S. economy by 18 percent from 2002 to 2012. Climate VISION partners include 15 trade groups representing a broad range on energy-intensive industrial sectors and four Federal agencies, the Department of Energy, Department of Transportation, Department of Agriculture, and Environmental Protection Agency.
