Energy 2030 Plan: Part of Obama's State of the Union

Release Date: Tuesday, February 12, 2013

Statement from Alliance to Save Energy President Kateri Callahan

"When the President issued a goal to cut energy waste in half, he advanced the Alliance's Energy 2030 plan, unveiled Thursday in Washington.

"Twenty national energy experts spent a year developing a plan to double U.S. energy productivity, and it took the White House just days to publicly embrace it.

"We are especially heartened to hear the President announce the new energy efficiency 'Race to the Top' challenge for states – a key recommendation of our bipartisan Energy 2030 plan.

"The President has spoken. The next big step will be securing Congressional support from both sides of the aisle, and we expect this will happen soon. 

"But we also encourage state and local governments, businesses and the public not to wait. They, too, can start driving energy efficiency now by using the solutions set forth in our Energy 2030 plan. 

"It's time for the U.S. to become a global leader in energy productivity."
