ENERGY 2040

The Energy 2040 Commission aims to demonstrate to policymakers that energy efficiency will be indispensable in achieving our energy and climate goals while improving the equity, reliability, and affordability outcomes critical to a just energy transition.

The Energy 2040 Commission

In 2012, in the wake of the Great Recession, the Alliance convened the Commission on National Energy Efficiency Policy, bringing together leaders from business, government, and academia with the goal to double the nation’s energy productivity by 2030. The resulting policy framework, Energy 2030, played a vital role in driving economic growth and job creation.

A decade later, the landscape has shifted, and we face even greater challenges. Our new mandate is to achieve a clean energy future, balancing rising electrical demand with rapidly decarbonizing generation. Achieving a just energy transition will mean keeping energy reliable and affordable while ensuring that every community and customer is included. It will require a generational investment in our energy infrastructure.

To meet this challenge, the Alliance is reviving the Commission to launch Energy 2040, a long-term initiative that will review past successes and look ahead to the new policies, technologies, and investments needed to transform our energy system. Energy 2040 will demonstrate to policymakers that energy efficiency will be indispensable in achieving our energy and climate goals while improving the equity, reliability, and affordability (ERA) outcomes critical to a just energy transition. With Energy 2040, we can meet this era’s defining moment.
