Specifically, the initiative seeks to promote state policies that encourage energy efficiency and conservation; promote non-petroleum fuels; reduce greenhouse gas emissions; and accelerate the research and development of advanced clean energy technologies. The initiatives efforts are guided by a task force composed of eight governors that represent a cross-section of the country and that share a common desire to advance clean energy.
