Message for Obama: Forward with Energy Efficiency
The Alliance will continue advancing energy efficiency policies with the second Obama Administration.
Statement from Alliance President Kateri Callahan
“During his first term, President Barack Obama strengthened the economy and created jobs by issuing Executive Orders improving fuel economy standards and advancing manufacturing and building efficiency,” said Alliance to Save Energy President Kateri Callahan.
“The president invested heavily in energy efficiency through the Recovery Act; weatherized more than a million homes; and made energy efficiency a central pillar and the ‘first fuel’ of choice for the nation,” continued Callahan.
“President Obama promised the American public an all-of-the-above energy strategy. We challenge him to move forward by putting efficiency first,” added Callahan.
“We expect -— and will press hard -— for President Obama and his team to continue on this important path to make the United States the most energy productive country in the world.”
“We welcome the opportunity to share with the Obama Administration and the 113th Congress upcoming policy recommendations of the bipartisan Alliance Commission on National Energy Efficiency Policy, whose goal is to double U.S. energy productivity by 2030,” Callahan concluded.
