Many NHL teams and arena operators are showing that they want to win when it comes to energy efficiency.
An organized series of lessons on achieving greater efficiency through a systems approach.

As Chair of the Energy Efficiency Global Forum’s International Steering Committee, I am looking forward to welcoming many of you to Copenhagen May 21-22. Now in its eleventh year, EE Global is the premier international energy efficiency event, and this year’s agenda will focus on innovation, investment, impact and the role of global policy in both developed and developing countries.

The International Steering Committee is the governance body for EE Global and consists of the “who’s who” of international energy efficiency across all regions of the world. I have had the privilege of serving on the ISC for many years and attending nearly all EE Global events,...

Ports are using more energy and spending more money on it than they would if they adopted electrified equipment. These two ports are showing the way to an electrified future.
Roughly 5 percent of electrical energy is lost during transmission and distribution. Microgrids can save energy by minimizing those losses -- and they bring several additional benefits.
Energy efficiency is transforming from an important, but perhaps detached, set of goals, activities, regulations and outcomes designed to reduce costs or protect natural resources. Now energy efficiency is integral to the new technologies, systems and solutions we develop and deploy.
Several states and municipalities are already prioritizing electric vehicle affordability and access. Their approaches show how to make EVs a reality nationwide.
Saving water and energy are two issues that are greatly interconnected.
Our water and energy resources are deeply interconnected through pervasive, though often invisible, linkages. Every drop of water delivered to a household requires energy for water extraction, purification, transport and treatment after use.
It seems these days you can’t swing a dead cat in D.C. without hitting someone talking about infrastructure. What’s not getting a lot of ink is what’s at stake for energy efficiency – which is a lot.

California is known around the world for its beautiful beaches, abundant sunshine and unique culture. But did you know that the state is also known for being one of the most energy-efficient states in the country and among the lowest in per capita energy consumption?

We’re heading to Los Angeles on Feb. 23 with a bipartisan group of congressional staff to learn from local leaders and experts in energy efficiency. As part of the trip, we’ll be holding a Policy Perspectives briefing in downtown LA to hear from energy efficiency innovators in the region. We hope to see you there.

Here are a few things...
