Climate Change Projects in Region 6
(Currently Texas and Louisiana)

In 2009, Region 6 of the Environmental Protection Agency recognized a need for the exchange of information regarding the development of technologies for climate change mitigation and adaptation projects. As a result, a contractor was engaged to compile information on climate change projects in the Gulf Coast states of Texas and Louisiana. Below is the product of this effort. Included with each project on the map is point of contact information, a link to a website with more information about the project, and production information including Annual tons of CO2 saved and kilo Watt hours produced. Please feel free to browse through the projects or find projects which may have technology important to you or your company.

Region 6 hopes to continue to expand this database and eventually solicit information on other projects through an on-line submission process.

Below is a summary of the annual kilo Watt hours and annual tons of CO2 saved by project type. This highlights the importance and effectiveness of climate “friendly” projects.
