Alliance Commends Progress on the Inflation Reduction Act

Release Date: Thursday, July 28, 2022

WASHINGTON – The Alliance to Save Energy released the following statement from President Paula Glover after the recent announcement that an agreement has been reached to include energy and climate funding in budget reconciliation legislation:

“We commend Senate leadership for reaching an agreement on budget reconciliation legislation this week. Included in the bill’s nearly half trillion dollars targeted toward climate action are needed energy efficiency investments that would provide funding to build and support more energy-efficient industry, government, and communities, including affordable housing, with specific attention to tribal, low-income, and disadvantaged communities. These provisions will deliver immediate and tangible benefits to communities across the U.S.

“As our nation grapples with high energy prices and the impacts of climate change, the Inflation Reduction Act is a unique opportunity to fulfill our national commitment to emission reductions. Energy efficiency measures alone can deliver half of the emission cuts required to get to net zero – which is why it’s so important to get these policies right and get them done.

“As this new legislation is considered, the Alliance will continue its work to ensure that energy efficiency investments are maximized. We look forward to final passage and implementation, and joining with Congress, the administration, and others in delivering policies to build a more efficient, clean, affordable, and equitable energy future for everyone.”
