Energy Efficiency Action Plan (EEAP) Portal

Welcome to the Portal for the U.S.-China Energy Efficiency Action Plan

The U.S.-China Energy Efficiency Action Plan (EEAP) is one of seven Presidential clean energy announcements made in 2009.

The EEAP is managed by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy and China’s National Development and Reform Commission.

The following links reflect work conducted under the auspices of the EEAP, including work led by others outside of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory’s China Energy Group.

US-China Energy Efficiency Forum

The EEAP established the US-China Energy Efficiency Forum as a platform for policy-makers to share experience and best practices in promoting energy efficiency in buildings and communities, industry and consumer products. Please visit the US-China Energy Efficiency Forum page for more information.
