Percent of emissions covered by decarbonization program As of the end of 2018, Vermont is one of ten US states and two Canadian provinces that participate in a decarbonization program. But the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) that Vermont participates in currently only covers a small percentage of our total emissions. See how we stack up. Vermont, New York, and Massachusetts participate in RGGI. California and Québec are members of the Western Climate Initiative (WCI), a cap and invest program. British Columbia has a province-wide carbon fee.

We are excited to share that our 2018 Annual Progress Report will be released on Monday, March 4th. This year’s report is our most comprehensive yet, featuring updated data and new analysis about the status of Vermont’s energy and emissions progress. See the Data Download for a sneak preview of one of the new graphics, and stay tuned for the full report in March!

Since September, EAN has been convening the Vermont Energy Future Initiative, a diverse group of stakeholders who have volunteered to identify key gaps and barriers to Vermont’s energy and emissions progress. Together, we are also learning about best practices and successful programs outside of Vermont to help us bend the curve towards our 2025 commitments. These research projects are underway, and we’ll be sharing the results with the full network soon. To learn more, visit our website or email EAN (
