Energy Efficiency Impact Report
Over the decades, energy efficiency has transformed the way we use energy and has helped build a cleaner economy that is more secure, more affordable, and more productive. But at a time when we should be expanding policies and investments in energy efficiency, there are concerning signs these initiatives are being weakened.
Regaining momentum is critical for U.S. economic and environmental leadership. Given the accelerating urgency of climate change and the race to improve U.S. productivity and competitiveness in a quickly evolving international market, we need to fully capitalize on the expansive, diverse, affordable, and innovative energy efficiency toolkit.
Using 54 indicators, the Energy Efficiency Impact Report explores a variety of sectors, including utilities, buildings, industry, and transportation and examines how policy and other tools are used to incentivize energy efficiency. The report’s key findings articulate the sweeping impacts of our energy efficiency investments, policies, and innovations to date and justifies the need for continued advancement.
The EE Impact Report serves as a single, one-stop report that summarizes the contribution of energy efficiency to our society. The report is published as a collaboration between the Alliance, the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy, and the Business Council for Sustainable Energy.
