High-Impact Energy Efficiency
Using energy more efficiently through improved technologies and processes has long been the clear winner when it comes to cost-effective ways to promote energy and emissions savings. Despite the enormous potential of energy efficiency, progress is often hard to incent and underappreciated. In the current environment of economic uncertainty, however, efficiency is once again an important near-term component of any strategy to save money while striving to meet energy security and climate change goals. This session will explore the potential for catalyzing major steps forward on energy efficiency gains through a variety of innovative initiatives that seek to harness public and sector collaboration to identify high impact energy efficiency gains. It will also be an opportunity to preview the upcoming Clean Energy Ministerial in early April, with a specific focus on the important energy efficiency work being done through that initiative.
