new energy efficiency report from EERE

13 years ago | Dec 13, 2007
Department of Energy (DOE)'s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy just released a new report on energy efficiency, concluding that the "aggressive pursuit of energy efficiency in the United States over the next 18 years could cut the nation's growth in energy use by 50% or more." Quotable from the press release:
"The report sets a goal of achieving all cost-effective energy efficiency improvements throughout the United States by 2025. If that goal is achieved, the nation will spend $100 billion less for energy in 2025 than it would otherwise and will avoid emitting 500 million metric tons of carbon dioxide per year. The nation will also achieve $500 billion in net savings from its energy efficiency investments."
Also interesting is the list of participants. The report was drawn up by the National Action Plan for Energy Efficiency Leadership Group, representing more than 60 leading organizations (DOE and EPA act as facilitators). If you click on that link, you will pull up a file of not only these major players, but also their goals and achievements in energy efficiency. It's sort of like the ultimate buffet, energy-efficiency style - you get a wonderful overview of strategies to reduce energy consumption, from folks like: Dow Chemical, Duke Energy, Johnson Controls, National Rural Electric Cooperative, Tennessee Valley Authority, Efficiency Texas, Efficiency VT, Kansas Corporation Commission, Midwestern Energy Company, Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (and far more).
