The EPA issued a draft regulation to limit carbon pollution from existing power plants. This regulation presents the single best policy opportunity to reduce heat-trapping gases this decade. If designed well and implemented on schedule, the rule and accompanying state plans will reduce power-sector global warming emissions 25 percent by 2020. The Partnership Project hosts a coordinated coalition of national environmental groups and others to conduct strategic, coordinated communications and organizing activities to defend EPA’s authority to issue such rules, and to ensure that the power plant rule is effective and on schedule. Since approval of this grant and other EPA rule oriented grants reported in the docket, EPA released the draft regulation described above. This is an important step in the process of securing a strong final regulation that will cut electric sector GHG emissions by 30% by 2030.

Grants to this Grantee
for the Climate Action Campaign
The Partnership Project hosts the Climate Action Campaign a group of national environmental organizations and influential partners that conducts coordinated efforts to slow and stop attacks on climate and clean energy progress.
for the Climate Advocacy Lab and Methane Partners Campaign
The Partnership Project will use Hewlett funding to support two programs: the Climate Advocacy Lab and the Methane Partners Campaign. The Climate Advocacy Lab helps climate and clean energy advocates run more effective campaigns by providing support for polling, data analytics, social science expertise, experimentation, and other tools. The Lab makes research and experimentation results available to its nearly 2,000 member groups though an online platform. The Methane Partners Campaign is a coordinated effort by many state and national organizations to defend and implement — and eventually strengthen — regulations to reduce methane emissions from oil and gas drilling. The Campaign is working to preserve EPA authority to regulate methane, defend strong rules that limit methane emissions from new oil and gas production sites, and build support for reducing methane emissions among state and federal decision makers.
