        That's the promise of energy efficiency, a major clean energy solution. In fact, our homes, businesses, and industries account for three-quarters of US energy consumption and two-thirds of US carbon emissions. They're also where some of the most significant and readily available energy and economic savings can be found. Building on improvements in energy efficiency in U.S. industrial manufacturing that have occurred over the past several decades in response to volatile fossil-fuel prices, fuel shortages, and technological advances is essential to maintaining U.S. industry’s viability in an increasingly competitive fact is that many opportunities remain to incorporate cost-effective, energy.

      An energy-efficient fridge will use less energy than an old model but still keep your food cool, while an energy-efficient washing machine will get your clothes smelling fresh and clean without using as much power as an older version. The term energy efficiency can also be used in a wider sense. Included $ billion in tax credits to homeowners for energy efficiency improvements in , $ million for reducing diesel engine emissions, $ billion for energy infrastructure, $ billion for energy efficiency and renewable energy research and investment, $2 billion in research for DOE, $ million in research for NOAA.

      the impetus for the country as a whole to realize its energy efficiency potential—to improve the economy, environment, and national security. 2. There is no widely accepted methodology for evaluating energy efficiency policies. Measuring policy impact is critical for evaluating the effectiveness of policies at all levels of government. Or visit the Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency for information about government- and utility-sponsored incentives. Lowering your energy bill. Buying an energy-efficient appliance is one way you might get the most from the energy you use. Visit DOE's Energy Saver site at and ENERGY STAR at to see.
