Energy 2030 On the Road: A State and Local Campaign is an education, outreach and action campaign aimed at motivating communities and states across the nation to adopt the goal of doubling energy productivity by 2030. By making stops in key cities around the country, the campaign will inform participants about policies, programs and initiatives that can aid in doubling energy productivity by 2030.

With co-hosts ASHRAE and the Southeast Energy Efficiency Alliance, the Alliance hosted Energy 2030 On the Road: Southeast in Atlanta, Georgia on June 23. The event enjoyed the sponsorship of Associate members Cree, Ingersoll Rand, Lime Energy, and Georgia Power (a subsidiary of Southern Company) and the partnership of the Southface Energy Institute. The event gathered nearly 60 attendees, representing Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee, and was keynoted by Commissioner Brandon Presley of the Public Service Commission of Mississippi.

Most importantly, the Southeast event was successful in adding new entities to the campaign with Southface Energy Institute and GreenLaw joining as the newest Endorsers. We look forward to working with Southface and GreenLaw as we continue to engage the Southeast region in our goal to double energy productivity.
