U.S. Joins Forces on the Path to Net-Zero
The U.S. partners with Australia to help supply chains and deploy clean energy across the world.
According to the Department of Energy, united States Secretary of Energy Jennifer M. Granholm and Australia’s Minister for Climate Change and Energy Chris Bowen yesterday signed the Australia – United States Net-Zero Technology Acceleration Partnership at the Sydney Energy Forum. This is a formal partnership to accelerate the development and deployment of zero emissions technology, and cooperate on critical minerals supply chains to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while supercharging economic growth.
“The Australia-U.S. Net-Zero Technology Acceleration Partnership reflects our nations’ joint commitment to grow our energy capacity and obtain the full advantages of affordable, diverse and secure clean energy,” said U.S. Secretary Jennifer M. Granholm. “With today’s partnership, our two countries will work together to unlock critical advances in long-duration storage, grid integration, clean hydrogen, direct air capture, and critical minerals and materials – providing an essential opportunity to export the innovations that will accelerate the global clean energy transition.”
