The goal is to contribute to the advancing deployment of renewable energy technologies and low carbon economic growth in the context of the Energy and Climate Partnership of the Americas, and to reduce the region’s potential contribution to climate change, while promoting its overall economic development and energy independence. It involves the development and distribution of the technology, measurements and associated standards needed in the Americas to provide effective and efficient implementation of renewable energy technologies that sustain a low-carbon economy.
In this way, the technological progress in the Americas Region will meet the following needs:
• A sustainable low-carbon economy
• Scientific discovery, innovation and R&D intensive growth
• The well-being and security of citizens of the Americas
