Enhancing Energy Efficiency: How Technology is Cutting Carbon Emissions

As world leaders met in Dubai for COP28, here at home, the Biden Administration has set a goal of cutting U.S. greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030. To do so, the U.S. will tap into provisions laid out in The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), which includes a set of tax incentives, loans and grants to improve energy efficiency and climate resiliency.

For consumers, it is the IRA’s Home Efficiency Rebate (HOMES) and High Efficiency Electric Appliance Rebate (HEEHRA) programs to purchase newer, more energy-efficient household appliances, and the adoption of power-saving technology, that will be felt most at home. In addition, the private sector plays a crucial role as the driving force of energy efficient innovation, designing new technologies and driving solutions that mitigate climate impact, reduce carbon emissions and empower consumers to make more sustainable choices.

What can Americans do to tackle climate change and alter their carbon footprint? How can new trends and technologies accelerate the impact of energy efficiency as a low-cost resource for cutting carbon emissions? And what climate progress has been made since the passage of the IRA almost a year and a half ago?

Join The Hill as they convene leaders from business, government and the climate sector to discuss the latest innovations in energy efficiency, and how a path to a greener future can start right at home.
