Today identical, bi-partisan House and Senate resolutions were introduced urging a change in the current Congressional scoring practices used to evaluate legislation related to energy efficiency performance contracts. The Alliance applauds the authors of the legislation -- Alliance Honorary Vice-Chair Chris Coons (D-DE), Senator John Hoeven (R-ND), Alliance Honorary Vice-Chair Peter Welch (D-VT) and Congressman Cory Gardner (R-CO) as well as 45 other members of Congress -- for seeking to unleash the power of energy efficiency performance contracts to save the American taxpayers money on federal energy bills.
“This morning Secretary of Energy Ernest J. Moniz unveiled an important new partnership that will work to achieve the goal of doubling U.S. Energy Productivity between now and the year 2030. The Alliance to Save Energy is honored and eager to join with the U.S. Department of Energy and the Council on Competitiveness on Accelerate Energy Productivity 2030, an initiative to ensure that the U.S. remains the world’s strongest and most dynamic economy by engaging stakeholders across the country in a national effort to double energy productivity, co-creating new pathways to achieving this goal, and catalyzing concrete actions by public and private stakeholders."
