The US Green Building Council (USGBC) has joined the Global Energy Efficiency Accelerator Platform, a program of UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon’s Sustainable Energy for All initiative. The Business Council for Sustainable Energy (BCSE) also joined the initiative.
The Accelerator Platform and its members are committed to the goal of doubling the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency by 2030. Launched two months ago at the UN Climate Summit, the Accelerator Platform is designed to unite key stakeholders who are dedicated to working together to catalyze a major scaling up of energy efficiency activities with a collaborative program of technical and financial assistance.
The Global Energy Efficiency Accelerator Platform teams will engage with national and sub-national leaders to support concrete action at the country, city, state, regional and sector levels, together with donors and other supporters.
