The Alliance for Industrial Efficiency joined 15 energy-efficiency, labor, business and environmental organizations to urge governors to capitalize on the largely untapped potential of industrial energy efficiency (IEE) to help meet state greenhouse gas reduction (GHG) targets in the Clean Power Plan (CPP). The interactive map below includes links to each letter sent to governors, state air directors and energy officers in the 45 states with emission targets under the rule. The letter explained that industrial efficiency is a valuable tool to help states strengthen their manufacturing base, promote economic growth, increase grid reliability, and reduce emissions while lowering everyone’s electric bills. It was accompanied by a briefing packet with resources to guide state policymakers as they develop their compliance plan. Click on your state of choice to access the letter. The industrial efficiency briefing packet is available online here. A press release about this effort is available here.
