National Commission on Energy Policy (NCEP)
Part of the Bipartisan Policy Center, the National Commission on Energy Policy (NCEP) - a bipartisan group of 20 of the nation's leading energy experts representing the highest ranks of industry, government, academia, labor, consumer and environmental protection - has been advising Congress, the Executive Branch, States and other policymakers regarding long-term U.S. policy. The Commission identifies and addresses the political and analytical barriers that have thwarted previous efforts at energy policy reform and conducts extensive outreach to government, business, NGO and other communities.
Through their Regional Climate Impacts and Adaptation project, NCEP leverages local academic institutions to conduct assessments of the potential effects of climate change in the medium and long term – 25 to 75 years – on particular economic sectors in specific regions of the United States, and facilitates the development of sound, evidence-based, regional adaptation policies. NCEP has worked with policymakers and scientists in key states to better understand the risks and aid in the design of effective policies that would mitigate impacts and help in the planning for the potential effects from a changing climate.
