Clean Air Act Advisory Committee (CAAAC)

Energy, Clean Air and Climate Change Subcommittee of the CAAAC

This subcommittee is currently inactive.

In July 1997, EPA established a new subcommittee under the Clean Air Act Advisory Committee to focus on the interaction of energy, clean air, and climate change issues. The Subcommittee on Energy, Clean Air and Climate Change dealt with an important emerging issue that directly overlaps with OAR's regulatory charges: eighty-five percent of greenhouse gas emissions come from energy sources which are directly regulated under the CAA. The subcommittee provided a forum for education on climate issues and dissemination of timely information on the latest policy developments to state and local governments, the business community, and other stakeholders. In addition, the subcommittee examined strategies and provided advice on scientific, economic, and policy issues that encompass the interaction of clean air, energy and climate change issues.

Membership on the subcommittee included experts in industrial economics, state representatives from energy and air quality agencies, representatives from other state and local interest groups, environmental groups, public utilities, industry representatives, academicians, union representation, and other appropriate groups. The subcommittee was co-chaired by Anthony Earl, former Governor of Wisconsin and by Kathleen Hogan, former Acting Director of the Atmospheric Pollution Prevention Division.
