Energy 2030 On the Road is an education, outreach and action campaign aimed at urging communities throughout the nation to adopt the goal of doubling energy productivity by 2030. 

In broad terms, the Energy 2030 initiative is organized around the following three pillars, which set the agenda of this event:

  • Invest in energy productivity throughout the economy; 
  • Modernize regulations and infrastructure to improve energy productivity; and, 
  • Educate and engage consumers, workers, business executives, and government leaders on ways to drive energy productivity gains.

This stop will bring together local policymakers, business leaders and advocates to illustrate how this ambitious national goal can be achieved.
