The US-China Energy Cooperation Program (ECP) was founded in 2009 by 24 US companies as a private sector-led non-profit public-private-partnership platform.

With official support from US government agencies including the Department of Commerce (DOC), Department of Energy (DOE), and US Trade and Development Agency (TDA), together with Chinese government agencies including the National Energy Administration (NEA) and Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM), ECP acts as a bridge connecting governments with the private sector to advance sustainable development and facilitate commercial cooperation on clean energy, energy efficiency, and environment sectors.
