From a press release issued by the Wisconsin Energy Conservation Corporation:

MADISON, Wis. (November 21, 2007) – Wisconsin Energy Conservation Corporation (WECC) applauds Governor Jim Doyle’s role in the signing of the Midwestern Greenhouse Gas Reduction Accord.

The announcement of the accord, which was made at the Midwestern Governors Association Energy Summit last week, includes specific timelines for the advance of energy efficiency, the promotion of biobased products, the production of renewable electricity and the development of advanced coal and carbon capture and storage.

Governors throughout the Midwest signed the accord as a regional strategy to achieve energy security and reduce greenhouse gas emissions that cause global warming. As part of the announcement, Governor Doyle agreed to pursue policies to meet 2 percent of Wisconsin’s annual electricity and natural gas consumption through energy efficiency.

“The signing of this accord enacts a unified approach to addressing global warming in Wisconsin and throughout the Midwest,” said WECC Energy Policy Director, George Edgar. “In addition, the governors recognize that energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies must play an integral role in reducing our environmental impact. Governor Doyle played a critical role in the signing of this accord and has also been a key player in bringing energy efficiency and renewable energy practices back to the forefront in Wisconsin.”
