The American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009 (ACES) is a landmark climate change legislation requires that the United States reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 17% by 2020. ACES also requires electricity providers to produce 20% of their electricity from renewable sources by 2020.

In June 2009, the House passed ACES. Currently, the bill is in the Senate, and Senators Blanche Lincoln and Mark Pryor are sitting on the fence.
