U.S. President Obama and China President Xi Jinping make Joint Announcement on the Extension and Expansion of CERC

In November 2014, The United States and China made a renewed and expanded commitment to the U.S.-China Clean Energy Research Center (CERC). This will include:

  • Extending the CERC mandate for an additional five years from 2016-2020;
  • Renewing funding for the three existing tracks: building efficiency, clean vehicles, and advanced coal technologies with carbon capture, use and sequestration (CCUS); and
  • Launching a new track on the interaction of energy and water (the energy/water ‘nexus’).
