Advocacy | Alliance to Save Energy


Built Environment

A lot of energy consumption happens indoors, making buildings an important target for energy efficiency. And the energy efficiency toolkit is getting smarter: emerging innovations around building systems and grid-interactive technologies are combining with proven solutions like high-efficiency windows and insulation to make the promise of decarbonization a reality in the buildings sector. But to get there, we need to do more to push energy efficiency into the market.


Buildings Advocacy

Improving energy efficiency in the built environment is at the core of the Alliance’s work, from advancing classic efficiency solutions such as envelope improvements to paving the way for new technologies for managing energy use in real time. Our goal is to enact bipartisan policies that advance efficiency in homes and buildings, and as a result create jobs in a workforce devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic, reduce energy bills for households and businesses, and slash harmful emissions.
