Alliance Statement on Initial White House Budget Request

Release Date: Friday, April 9, 2021

The Alliance to Save Energy released the following statement from President Paula Glover regarding the White House’s Fiscal Year 2022 budget proposal released Friday.

“The Alliance to Save Energy looks forward to working with the administration and Congress as they begin the deliberative budget process. As the first solution to reduce carbon emissions and energy costs for consumers, as well as a significant driver in jobs and economic development, we are committed to ensuring that energy efficiency is a major budget priority.

The Alliance supports proposed increases in clean energy and climate programs across the federal government, including at the Department of Energy, EPA, Department of Transportation, Department of Housing and Urban Development, and elsewhere, and we’re encouraged by the administration’s commitment to addressing the climate crisis in a way that is fair and equitable across all communities. These investments will pay enormous dividends both in the short-term – in terms of stimulating economic activity – and also in the long-term for putting the United States at the forefront of the global energy transition and avoiding massive public costs to taxpayers from climate disruption.

As one of the most powerful solutions for addressing climate change, and as the single largest employer in the clean energy industry, energy efficiency must be a priority in any approved budget. The Alliance looks forward to seeing a budget framework into law that fully recognizes this value.”
