Today marks a tremendous step forward in the Alliance to Save Energy’s quest to double U.S. energy productivity by 2030 with the issuance of a presidential Executive Order calling for massive reductions in energy and water use in federal buildings and greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) from federal fleets. As the single largest energy consumer in the U.S., this move by the Federal Government will have significant positive effects on the country’s economy — saving taxpayers an estimate $18 billion in avoided energy costs — and our environment — reducing GHG emissions by 40% — over the next ten years.
