The U.S. faces unprecedented challenges in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic while building a secure and affordable energy future to overcome the climate crisis. Perhaps more than any other energy resource, energy efficiency holds tremendous potential to address these challenges by creating jobs and economic activity while sharply reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and slashing energy costs for households and businesses. This document outlines the Alliance to Save Energy’s immediate policy priorities for stimulating investment and activity in the efficiency sector that President-elect Joe Biden’s administration and the 117th Congress should address in the early months of 2021. In addition to the specific proposals outlined in this agenda, we look forward to working with lawmakers in a bipartisan way to develop economy-wide policies that ensure markets are appropriately valuing the
benefits of energy efficiency as an economic, environmental justice, and climate solution.
