The Clean Energy-Environment Guide to Action: Policies, Best Practices, and Action Steps for States (April 2006) provides in-depth information about 16 clean energy policies and programs that states are using to meet their energy, environmental, and economic objectives. States have found that these 16 clean energy policies and programs offer numerous opportunities to save energy, improve air quality, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve system reliability and security, and enhance economic development. The Guide to Action is intended for use by state energy, environment, and economic policymakers and public utility commissions.
The Guide to Action is available as a full report or as individual chapters that correspond with each of the 16 best practices. To obtain a hard copy of the Guide to Action, order a copy online or call NCSEP at 1-800-490-9198. Request EPA publication number 430-R-06-001.
