AEEE: Efficiency as a Resource is a Winner
The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) has released a report that looks at energy efficiency as a resource.
A blog at the organization’s site says that energy efficiency is the third largest resource in the country. It has made the construction of 313 power plants unnecessary since 1990 and is a greater contributor the energy profile of the United States than nuclear power. In 2015, the report says, carbon dioxide emissions were reduced by 490 tons due to energy efficiency. Consumers, the story says, have saved $90 billion on electric bills.
The best may be yet to come: The AEEE suggests that it could become the leading energy efficiency resource by 2030. Hospitals are a great example of how sectors of the economy are building energy efficiency into their operations.
