Power Partners℠ Resource Guide

The Power PartnersResource Guide (PPRG) is a Web-based resource developed to help electric power companies and their customers identify and undertake actions to reduce, avoid, or sequester greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and/or reduce GHG emissions intensity. 

This guide is designed to help power companies and electricity consumers identify GHG emission or emission intensity reduction opportunities and find the latest, "state-of-the-art" information on a variety of topic areas through the use of links to credible Websites.  The PPRG also makes possible a dialogue between people implementing projects and people wanting to implement projects through its listings of dozens of projects undertaken by Power Partners members.
