    Unlocking Energy Efficiency in the U.S. Economy Executive summary energy infrastructure, and introduction of unaccounted-for consumption, such as electric vehicles. However, energy efficiency could measurably reduce the total new infrastructure investment required . Building on improvements in energy efficiency in U.S. industrial manufacturing that have occurred over the past several decades in response to volatile fossil-fuel prices, fuel shortages, and technological advances is essential to maintaining U.S. industry’s viability in an increasingly competitive fact is that many opportunities remain to incorporate cost-effective, .

    ACEEE believes that the United States can harness the full potential of energy efficiency to achieve greater economic prosperity, energy security, and environmental protection for all its people. 14th Street NW, Suite Washington, DC ()   The Alliance to Save Energy joined with the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy and the Business Council for Sustainable Energy to release the Energy Efficiency Impact Report—a first-of-its-kind publication that uses reams of data and intuitive graphics to tell the comprehensive story of energy efficiency’s impact on the U.S. economy, .

    Witnesses testified about he origin and scope of the Department of Energy's loan guarantee program, lessons learned from the committee's investigation . Fact: In , the U.S. wasted more energy than it consumed. Greater Energy Efficiency will boost economic productivity and competitiveness and enhance U.S. energy security. The chart below shows: U.S. energy sources on the left side in quadrillions of BTUs; their respective contributions to “electricity generation” in the middle box; the amounts of electricity and other .
