Four decades ago, Republican Senator Charles Percy and Democratic Senator Hubert Humphrey assembled a bipartisan, nonprofit coalition of business, government, environmental and consumer leaders that today has become the leading voice in energy efficiency.
The Alliance to Save Energy began in response to a very critical period in our nation’s energy history – the OPEC Oil Embargo crisis of 1973 – and continues its mission today: to create a more energy-efficient world. In doing so, we aim to improve economic health, increase national security and reduce carbon emissions.
For more historical milestones, review our annual reports to witness the strides we have made – and challenges we have overcome – to advance energy efficiency in the U.S. and around the world.
The Alliance is the sum of over 120 Associates and a diverse and bipartisan Board of Directors, led by our Honorary Chair Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) and our Industry Co-Chair Jane Palmieri, Business President of Dow Building & Construction at The Dow Chemical Company together with an array of other foundations, organizations, partners and stakeholders. If you are not part of the Alliance, we encourage you to join us in realizing a world where our greatest energy resource is the energy we don’t use.
