A Roadmap for a Secure, Low-Carbon Energy Economy
Energy security and climate change are global issues, requiring a coordinated international response. However, global action to address these issues hinges most immediately on U.S. action and reengagement. With this understanding, working with the international, policy, business, and research communities, the World Resources Institute (WRI) and CSIS developed a roadmap to guide energy and climate policies for the new administration and Congress.
In addition to the Roadmap, the following publications were composed in order to explore more deeply some of the issues critical to achieving a secure, low-carbon energy economy. These papers, in order to support the Roadmap, establish a framework for understanding the complex and evolving links between energy security and climate change and discuss the respective roles of important elements—technology, natural gas, and transportation—during this transition.
