Indo-Pacific Energy Security and Decarbonization (Clean EDGE Asia)

Energy demand in the Indo-Pacific is forecasted to grow 60 percent by 2040.  Clean EDGE Asia aims to support and accelerate Asia’s clean energy transition by deploying the joint resources, expertise, and technology of the United States government and private sector.  Clean EDGE Asia serves as the coordination mechanism for the partner agencies to align our development assistance, commercial advocacy, and export financing tools to accelerate the region’s clean energy transition.

Programs that aim to advance Clean EDGE Asia objectives include:

  • The Japan-U.S. Clean Energy Partnership (JUCEP)
  • The Japan-U.S. Mekong Power Partnership (JUMPP)
  • The Flexible Resources Initiative (FRI) of the U.S.-India Clean Energy Finance Task Force

Energy Resource Governance Initiative (ERGI)

Energy Resource Governance Initiative (ERGI) Flyer
ERGI Flyer

The ENR-led Energy Resource Governance Initiative (ERGI) seeks to build robust, reliable supply chains for the minerals and metals needed for the clean energy transition and to ensure these supply chains adhere to international Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) standards.  The free online ERGI Toolkit provides extensive information on mining and processing best practices.  Through capacity-building technical assistance programs, ENR supports foreign partners as they address policy, fiscal, regulatory, and technical issues to strengthen their mining sector governance.

Clean Energy Demand Initiative (CEDI)

The Clean Energy Demand Initiative (CEDI)
CEDI Fact Sheet

The ENR-led Clean Energy Demand Initiative leverages private sector commitments to deploy clean energy technologies by creating a platform for companies to send investment signals to key markets. Through CEDI, over 75 companies have expressed interest in signaling their willingness to procure renewable energy in 14 countries to offset electricity demand for a multitude of sectors, including technology, manufacturing, retail, and health. Countries in turn will signal support for high level principles to create an enabling environment for corporate renewable procurement. The renewable demand from these companies has the potential to unlock up to $100 billion in energy infrastructure investment. In many cases this renewable investment will complement broader industrial and commercial investment. CEDI will serve as a platform for stakeholder engagement and country partnerships, and create a venue for companies and countries to continually signal investment potential and policy plans. CEDI builds on commitments made by hundreds of major corporations to 100 percent renewable energy by 2050 or earlier. The U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Energy Resources is leading CEDI with relevant stakeholders, including the Clean Energy Buyers Alliance, RE100, the World Resources Institute, as well as NGOs and country partners.

European Energy Security and Decarbonization

The United States supports European efforts to liberalize energy markets and increase energy security through diversification of energy suppliers, routes, and fuel types, including nuclear and renewables, with an emphasis on decarbonization.  The Department also works with European allies and partners—most notably Germany—on other measures to reduce risk to European energy security and Ukraine.  Key legislation in this arena include:

  • Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA); and

Section 225 Public Guidance

Section 232 Public Guidance

  • The Protecting Europe’s Energy Security Act (PEESA), as amended

Latin America and Caribbean Energy Security and Decarbonization

In the Western Hemisphere, ENR works with governments through diplomatic engagement and technical assistance to build energy sector capacity, promote good governance, and encourage decarbonization.  Building transparent markets to promote investment in energy infrastructure fuels economic growth to address root causes of migration and opens investment opportunities for U.S. companies.  ENR supports Western Hemisphere countries’ transition to clean energy solutions to achieve climate change goals as well as mitigate weather and hydrocarbon supply vulnerabilities.  ENR assists regional integration projects to improve grid reliability and resiliency.

Africa Energy Security and Decarbonization   

Sub-Saharan Africa’s abundant clean energy resources and growing energy demand provide opportunities for the United States to advance energy and climate objectives, support U.S. companies, pursue broader national security and economic interests, and help governments in the region achieve UN Sustainable Development Goals.  ENR engages with sub-Saharan African partners diplomatically and programmatically to:

  • Build governments’ capacity to manage their power sectors and promote market-based competition.
  • Develop and promote regional integration to leverage resources, create resilience in energy systems, and improve energy access.
  • Address market distortions such as fuel and power price subsidies.
  • Improve mining sector governance to attract investment and strengthen supply chain resiliency critical to the global energy transition.
