BLOG TO SAVE ENERGY

As technology advances, so does Samsung’s ability to bring to market the innovations that meet the needs of consumers. Across the vast spectrum of our product lines, from mobile devices to televisions to washing machines, energy efficiency is always in demand.
To help you save money (and energy!) during the hottest months of the year, the Alliance to Save Energy is publishing a mini blog-series, “Saving Money in the Summer.” We’ll focus on key tips to improve energy efficiency at home and on-the-go. The first blog post will focus on how to save money when cooling your home.
The Alliance to Save Energy’s PowerSave Schools, in partnership with Siemens, held a video competition with the goal of encouraging school students to showcase their knowledge and work to improve energy efficiency in their school. Three schools were selected to participate in the competition: from New York, llionois and Maine. The contest focused on three factors: creativity, content, and engagement.
A wildly successful energy conservation program is slated to be cut in the new administration’s budget – a move that would prove detrimental to colleges and universities and the students they serve.
I traveled to Washington, D.C., recently to speak at the annual EE Global Forum, which gathers energy efficiency leaders – including policymakers, industry representatives, and research experts— to build partnerships and to create actionable dialogue. This forum serves as a strong reminder of how many different industries and sectors can benefit from clean, efficient energy. Attendees get a firsthand look at all of the cutting edge research, projects and partnerships that are taking place.
As word spread that the budget blueprint would do away with a voluntary program as popular and successful as ENERGY STAR, we leveraged our alarm into a call to action. Alliance President Kateri Callahan proclaimed: “We oppose these cuts in the strongest possible terms and will do everything we can to fight them in Congress. Cutting this funding is the definition of penny-wise, pound foolish. We should be increasing funding, not reducing it.”

Spring is upon us, which means it’s time for us to start taking out the old and putting in the new. Spring cleaning doesn’t just have to mean getting rid of the clothes you still have from high school or finally cleaning the attic out. It can also mean finding new ways to make your life and the world around you more efficient and productive. We are here to present some energy saving ideas to add to your Spring cleaning to-do list!
This is the second post from the Alliance’s “Eye on Infrastructure” blog series, which will highlight how policymakers can work to ensure energy security, economic competitiveness, and savings for American taxpayers by considering the role of energy efficiency in rebuilding America’s infrastructure.
