2008 Alliance Annual Report

We are at the cusp of a new age of energy efficiency, one in which the potentials of this clean and inexpensive fuel are wedded to both economic stimulus and emissions reductions. Moreover, the new Administration has given all indications of being 'on board’ with this vision, and we are anticipating a busy yet productive year ahead.

2008 Highlights

Consider the highlights of 2008 – a year in which we achieved outstanding progress in our mission to promote energy efficiency as the nation’s ‘first fuel’. As you will read in the following pages, the Alliance led the charge on a number of campaigns and initiatives – campaigns for better fuel efficiency, stronger building codes and higher appliance standards, to name a few.

In addition, we took our promotional duties to the “nth” degree, making absolutely certain our message went beyond the halls of Congress and into the homes, communities and businesses of citizens seeking – and deserving – sustainable alternatives to the high-energy-consuming, high-polluting, high-priced status quo.

2009 Outlook

Please join us for a moment as we celebrate the victories of the past year; they belong to all of us whose efforts have helped to speed the deployment of energy efficiency worldwide. Thank you for your continued support. I look forward to working with you in the coming months!
