ACC supports goal of doubling energy productivity by 2030

02/8/2013

In response to recommendations issued by the Alliance Commission on National Energy Efficiency Policy, ACC issued the following statement:

"ACC supports the Alliance Commission's worthwhile goal of doubling energy productivity by 2030, creating annual savings of $327 billion, and saving the average household more than $1,000. The business of chemistry makes a vital contribution to energy efficiency. The products of chemistry save up to 11.1% of total U.S. energy consumption, according to an ACC study -- enough to power, light, heat and cool up to 56 million homes or power 135 million vehicles annually. These chemistry products and technologies save Americans up to $85 billion every year. In addition, a recent report by the International Council of Chemical Associations found that greater adoption of existing efficiency technologies, enabled by chemistry, could lower energy use in buildings by 41% by 2050. ACC looks forward to working with a wide variety of stakeholders and policymakers to advance energy efficiency measures that create a more productive energy economy."
