The third annual Energy Efficiency Day (#EEDAY2018) is coming up on October 5. We put together a list of ways you can get involved.
Natasha Vidangos of the Alliance, Terry Sobolewski of National Grid, and Brad Stertz of Audi discuss the 50x50 Commission's upcoming report on reducing energy use in U.S. transportation.
This week, as global leaders gather at the Global Climate Action Summit, we need to ensure we are not only cultivating ambition, but also exploring collaborative clean energy solutions that address multiple challenges.
In mid-August, the Alliance to Save Energy led a bipartisan group of 11 Congressional staff to Seattle and the surrounding area to learn about energy efficiency technology and policy beyond the beltway. Seattle was a great location for such a trip as it combines strong leadership on energy efficiency issues at both the state and city levels and is home to many companies on the leading edge of energy efficiency technology.
The U.S. government spends roughly $6 billion each year on the energy consumed by people and systems within federal buildings. This cost is far higher than necessary because many older federal buildings are very energy inefficient and do not take advantage of new technologies that can shift, shape and integrate energy needs with innovative solutions. Upgrading the equipment and systems in existing buildings would be an investment bargain that saves money for decades, but it’s not happening nearly as much as it should.

In 2007, Congress came together and passed bipartisan legislation that advanced energy efficiency and addressed a problem facing American families. If you remember back then, most light bulbs used in homes were much less efficient than what we have today. Wasted energy to light our homes and businesses came at a high cost – hundreds of dollars for the average household. Democrats and Republicans joined forces and...

Improving energy efficiency in buildings and transportation is key to Denver's emissions reduction goal.
Building efficiency is one of the most effective near-term opportunities for achieving national and international climate and energy goals.
A recent GSA report finds overwhelming energy savings from high-performance buildings.
