Energy Report

Publicly released on April 22, 2022, this new report – OUR REGION’S ENERGY FUTURE:  A strategy for accelerating decarbonization, investment and inclusive growth in the Pittsburgh region – is the result of a year’s worth of work by the 25+-member Allegheny Conference Energy Task Force, whose members represent southwestern Pennsylvania’s public and private sectors, as well as academia and philanthropy.

In addition to setting a baseline and acknowledging progress that’s been made, the report provides research-grounded insights to support a regional strategy to accelerate decarbonization – critical to reducing greenhouse gas emissions – while driving investment, employment and inclusive growth to the benefit of people and places across southwestern Pennsylvania.  It also details actions, near- and longer-term, that will need to be taken by regional stakeholders, working in partnership, to realize southwestern Pennsylvania’s full potential in a low-carbon future.
