The Office of Resource Sustainability’s Division of Policy and Analysis develops technical, economic, and policy analyses to support the office’s research and development, engagement, and natural gas regulatory work. The Division’s technical expertise and analysis focuses on methane emissions, critical minerals, hydrogen production, and other crosscutting efforts to support the U.S. Department of Energy’s mission and to provide technical insights to other agencies.

Through the Greenhouse Gas Supply Chain Emissions Measurement, Monitoring, Reporting, and Verification Framework Working Group, the Office of Resource Sustainability is engaging with importing and exporting countries, and U.S. stakeholders, to explore the need for a shared and broadly credible global framework for estimating greenhouse gas emissions across the natural gas supply chain.
