The media conference with Prime Minister Harper and President Obama has just finished.
Harper spoke of a "new initiative to further cross-border cooperation on environmental protection and energy security."
A 'US-Canada Clean Energy Dialogue' will be launched with senior officials that will look at "clean energy science and technologies."
Obama emphasized "the development and use of clean energy." This includes "joint research and development of carbon reduction technologies and an electric grid."
Answering questions from the media, Harper asserted that Canada would "seek opportunities to harmonize (climate policies) to meet our needs."
He also asserted that US and Canadian emission targets "are more or less the same."
Harper also spoke to the need to "improve the electricity grid in North America."
Both leaders spoke to carbon capture and storage, though Obama spoke of it more in relation to "clean coal."
Later in the media conference, Obama said that he expects "continued integration" of energy.
