This article is part of the Center for Media & Democracy's spotlight on front groups and corporate spin.

The Partnership to Fuel America is a pro-energy industry front group set up by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce through a different, previously-formed Chamber front group called the Institute for 21st Century Energy. The first front group was created to advocate for an immediate increase in domestic drilling for oil, methane gas and coal mining. The Chamber created the Partnership specifically to advocate construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline to bring crude oil from the Alberta tar sands to the U.S. gulf coast. The vice president of the Partnership is Matt Koch, who previously worked for the American Petroleum Institute, a lobbying group for the energy industry.[1][2][3]
