June 26, 2018 - ACEEE will convene a one-day symposium to highlight international energy efficiency best practices in Washington , DC, with a particular focus on opportunities for improvement in the United States. His research has shown that energy efficiency can be a low-cost, powerful tool for countries to meet their energy and environmental goals and to sustainably increase shared prosperity.
Best Practices from Across the Globe
At this event, ACEEE will release its biennial International Scorecard, which examines the energy efficiency policies and performance of the world’s 25 largest energy-consuming countries. The scorecard evaluates countries based on 35 metrics and shows how all can substantially improve their energy efficiency. It has attracted considerable media attention, including Clean Technica and USA TODAY, and this workshop will broaden its reach.
The symposium will feature four panels that will explore: (1) scorecard findings, (2) lessons learned from high-performing countries, (3) opportunities for the United States, and (4) notable efforts and opportunities for global companies.
