The International Trade Administration has announced the U.S. Departments of State, Commerce and Energy are offering an opportunity for U.S.-based suppliers of clean energy, smart grid and energy efficiency systems to participate in the launch of an interactive directory of renewable energy and energy efficiency solutions. Through an interagency team, the departments have developed a beta version of an interactive app to serve as a mobile business directory for U.S. clean energy exporters.

According to information published in the Federal Register, the app will highlight deployments of sustainable technologies and systems at U.S. diplomatic missions and provide potential business partners with the ability to find information on U.S. technology and service providers. Biofuels are among the diverse array of clean energy goods and services the app will showcase.

The notice indicates U.S. clean energy and energy efficiency exporters interested in registering to be part of the interactive directory and provide information on their solutions to be included in the app should contact the ITA by the end of the year at reee@trade.gov.

According to the administration, users targeted by the app include foreign service officers and foreign commercial service officers and their energy stakeholders in international markets. “The app will enable users to easily demonstrate U.S. clean energy and energy efficiency solutions available in foreign markets and provide a tool to facilitate commercial partnerships that drive the deployment of U.S. technologies and services globally,” said the ITA in the notice. “Through the app, a global audience, as well as the American public, will be invited to learn more about environmental diplomacy efforts overseas, and the innovative U.S. companies powering them.”

Development of the app was first announced in January 2015. Additional information can be found on the Federal Register website
