The United States:
- Provided $10.5 million in fiscal year (FY) 2009. Since the Partnership's inception in November 2004, the United States has committed approximately $50.5 million to support a range of projects. When fully implemented, these projects will deliver estimated annual emission reductions of approximately 61 MMTCO2E.
- Leveraged approximately $387 million in private and public sector contributions from FY 2005 - FY 2009.
- Is supporting cooperative agreements for methane capture and use projects in multiple Partner Countries. In 2010, during the fourth Methane to Markets $5 million grant solicitation, EPA received 115 proposals for work in 23 different countries. When awarded, these projects will contribute to the more than 300 Partnership methane emission reduction projects in 18 Partner Countries around the world.
