Energy Action Team

The abundance of methane gas and natural gas liquids produced within several hundred miles of the Greater Philadelphia region, provides predictable and sustainable future sources of value added feedstock for chemical and petrochemical industries, and fuel for domestic and foreign export through the region’s highly developed infrastructure.

Through the work of the Greater Philadelphia Energy Action Team (GPEAT), a multi-industry energy consortium of over 80 business, public sector, labor and academic leaders, GPEAT is working to establish Greater Philadelphia as an energy hub to stimulate manufacturing and economic development. GPEAT aims to capitalize upon the Marcellus and Utica natural gas reserves to stimulate economic growth by promoting pipeline development and attracting more energy-intensive manufacturing companies to the region.

Tools & Reports

On March 30, 2016, the Greater Philadelphia Energy Action Team released a report detailing the opportunities and challenges for Greater Philadelphia to leverage the Marcellus/Utica natural gas resources to accelerate growth in our region. As a companion to the report, GPEAT also launched an energy assets mapping tool to dynamically display the region’s resources and infrastructure in support of energy and manufacturing development.

  • Energy Assets Map: The Energy Assets Map is available in a public version with limited details. If you are a site consultant, manufacturer or project developer interested in locating an energy intensive or natural gas related project in Greater Philadelphia, please contact Meghan Kelly at mkelly@selectgreaterphl.com for an extended presentation of this mapping tool.
