Seventeen utility providers voluntarily jumped on the Energy Department's initiative to outline specific adjustments and additions to the nation's energy infrastructure to combat rising sea levels and other climate-related risks.

In order to reach these goals, the Partnership will examine energy regulatory practices as well as incentive programs to encourage investment in new technology.
