Global Energy Security and Emissions Reduction (GESER)

In 2007, with support from the U.S. Department of Energy, USEA launched an initiative for Clean Energy Collaboration to Further Global Energy Security and Emissions Reduction (GESER).


As part of the GESER program, USEA coordinates the World Energy Council's Cleaner Fossil Fuels Systems (CFFS) Committee. The Committee promotes the understanding and knowledge worldwide of the strategic role of fossil fuels in meeting the growing energy demand and securing energy supplies, focusing in particular on the existing and emerging technologies for cleaner use of fossil fuels.


USEA also serves as Secretariat for the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum (CSLF).  The Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum (CSLF) is a Ministerial-level international climate change initiative that is focused on the development of improved cost-effective technologies for the separation and capture of carbon dioxide (CO2) for its transport and long-term safe storage. The mission of the CSLF is to facilitate the development and deployment of such technologies via collaborative efforts that address key technical, economic, and environmental obstacles.


USEA also supports a global and national dialogue on "Clean Coal and Power in a Carbon-Constrained Global Economy" through various activities in the GESER program.  Through these activities, USEA informs U.S. and multi-national institutions of the real costs of clean energy technology deployment and maintains an ongoing dialogue with these institutions seeking commitments to address cost issues.


USEA also provides international strategic analysis on clean energy collaboration.  This includes obtaining pre-commercial research data to accelerate the deployment of clean energy technologies and creating opportunities for the sale of clean energy technologies.
