The moves were applauded by many in the industry, including the Alliance To Save Energy’s President Paula Glover, who said in a release: “It’s simple: it is impossible to reach the Biden administration’s goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions 50 percent by 2030 without rapid decarbonization of the building sector, which accounts for 40 percent of U.S. emissions. The White House announced exactly the kind of action needed – but what really stands out is not just the recognition of the enormous challenge ahead, but the opportunity that energy efficiency investments present to create a more equitable, productive, and innovative energy future. Efficiency is a climate solution where emissions saved amounts to money saved for families, businesses, and taxpayers, and it’s also the largest employer in the clean energy economy. We’re looking forward to working with the administration and Congress in the coming weeks to prioritize energy efficiency as a primary tool to reduce carbon emissions and equitably jumpstart the economy.”
