BLOG TO SAVE ENERGY

In the face of increasing cost and devastation due to extreme weather and climate events, the U.S. has forced devastated communities to rebuild and replace damaged buildings and infrastructure to the same outdated standards. Now, Congress has acted to increase the resilience of communities most prone to future disasters and encouraged energy efficiency measures that will save taxpayers money.
IEA's report shows how global leaders could use energy efficiency to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions while the world economy expands. Instead, the report notes, top nations are investing far more in the continued development and consumption of fossil fuels.
The authors believe that “aggressive policies addressing energy efficiency are central in keeping 1.5°C within reach and lowering energy system and mitigation costs.”
These provisions may not garner the same level of excitement as the increased funding levels, but they are just as important, if not more so, because they ensure that the allocated funds are used in the correct manner.
The plan sets out a vision for a more resilient city with improved quality of life for all residents through five focus areas, including energy efficiency and sustainable transportation.
New technologies such as automated vehicles, ride-hailing, and electric and other alternative fuel vehicles provide us with a chance to reinvent how we move people and goods. With the right coordination, smart policy, and a strategy for capitalizing on this opportunity, we could use far less energy.
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.
