Why Energy Efficiency?

Why wait?  Our energy future can be decided NOW by adopting energy efficiency as the first solution for addressing global energy demand. Development and implementation of energy-efficient products, technologies and services:


And, it does so without sacrifice — energy efficiency enables us to do more while using less energy.

Energy Efficiency’s Impact


If we tried to run today’s economy without the energy-efficiency improvements that have taken place since 1973, we would need 55 percent more energy supplies than we use now.

Energy efficiency is the nation’s greatest energy resource—we saved 54 quads in 2011 due to energy efficiency and conservation efforts. This is more energy than we get from any single energy source, including oil, natural gas, coal, and nuclear. 

Looking forward the picture for energy efficiency is even brighter.  In 2013 the Alliance Commission on National Energy Efficiency Policy released Energy 2030, a set of policy recommendations with the potential to double U.S. energy productivity by 2030 through implementation of cost-effective energy efficiency technologies and practices.  The benefits of achieving this goal would be monumental.
