Energy & Environment 

As the Triangle region continues to grow, protecting our natural environment becomes even more important to securing a healthy, sustainable, and resilient future for our region.  The Energy & Environment Program works collaboratively with leaders and stakeholders across the region, state, and nation to protect our resources; as well as promote clean and resilient communities. Together, we are advancing regional efforts to improve water resources, reduce air pollution, increase renewable energy use, and enhance the resiliency of our region.
