Prince Edward Island's Climate Action Plan has four main goals:

- Reducing greenhouse gas emissions to mitigate the effects of global warming - Enhancing carbon sinks to reduce the harmful build-up of CO in the atmosphere - Improving PEI's communities' ability to adapt to climate change - Increase public awareness

The plan addresses PEI's energy strategy to add 500 MW of new wind power by 2013, as well as the planned increase in biomass energy and support for small-scale geothermal (heat) and solar projects.
