Germany to provide clean energy

Germany has become the 18th member of the international Methane to Markets Partnership, a Bush Administration initiative that promotes the recovery and use of methane to provide clean energy. Germany’s participation in the partnership will help reduce methane emissions and promote global energy security.

By 2015, Methane to Markets has the potential to deliver annual reductions in methane emissions equal to planting 55 million acres of trees or eliminating emissions from 33 million cars in America. The United States has committed $53 million to this initiative over the next 5 years.

Member countries work in collaboration with the private sector, multilateral development banks, and other governmental and non-governmental organizations through the partnership’s project network.

More than 300 organizations from around the world have made commitments to this partnership. In addition to Germany, countries participating in Methane to Markets include Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, Ecuador, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Nigeria, Russia, South Korea, Ukraine, the United Kingdom and the United States.
