The White House Office of Energy and Climate Change Policy is a new government entity in the United States created by President Barack Obama.

The office was created in order to coordinate administration policy on energy and climate change.


Energy and climate change policy of the Barack Obama administration

President Obama has announced the launch of the Major Economies Forum on Energy and Climate, which will facilitate candid dialogue among key developed and developing countries regarding efforts to advance clean energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. For the new forum, President Obama has invited the leaders of 16 major economies and the Secretary General of the United Nations to designate representatives that will participate in a preparatory session at the U.S. Department of State on April 27-28 in Washington, D.C. This and other preparatory sessions will culminate in a Major Economies Forum Leaders' meeting, which Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi agreed to host in La Maddalena, Italy, in July 2009. [2] The 17-nation MEF meeting was subsequently moved to earthquake-wrecked L'Aquila, Italy, and is scheduled for July 9, 2009.[1]
