About Energy Efficiency:
Energy efficiency has always been and will continue to be a vital solution to America's energy challenges – saving Americans tens of billions of dollars and creating hundreds of thousands of good jobs.
Energy efficiency is the nation's greatest energy resource -- we saved 52 quads of energy from 1973 through 2009 thanks to energy efficiency and conservation efforts. This is more energy than we get from any single energy source, including oil. If we tried to run today's economy without those energy efficiency improvements, it would take nearly 50% more energy than we use now.
About the Alliance: Shaping National Energy Efficiency Policy:
Currently the Alliance Commission on National Energy Efficiency Policy is crafting a list of energy efficiency policies that the nation can embrace to double U.S. productivity by 2030. The Alliance will unveil Commission research reports in October, and policy recommendations after the election.
Doing more with less is a topic that Kateri (pronounced Kuh-terry) can tackle with spunk, charm, and in-depth knowledge. Leading the Alliance for the last eight years, Kateri has championed the power of energy efficiency while testifying on Capitol Hill, hosting international conferences, adding expertise at numerous energy efficiency forums, and doing media interviews. She is ready for any convention media opportunity.
The Alliance to Save Energy is a bipartisan coalition of prominent business, government, environmental and consumer leaders who promote the efficient, and clean use of energy worldwide to benefit consumers, the environment, economy, and national security.
