This paper summarises US actions in the field of climate and energy taking into account the rapid development of policy since the mid term election, in November 2006. It draws conclusions regarding efforts in relation to cap and trade, biofuels, renewable energy, voluntary initiatives, energy efficiency and nuclear energy. The structure of the report mimics that of the EU background paper allowing easy comparison of efforts in both regions.
