Free Webinar: The Role of Energy Efficiency in a High Renewable Energy Future
Event Description

As part of its climate commitments, the United States has set a goal of reaching 100% carbon-free electricity by 2035. Accelerated investments in the clean energy sector will lower renewable energy prices, making renewable energy increasingly competitive with energy efficiency. However, energy efficiency will play a critical role in enabling this decarbonized high-renewable energy future by reducing the overall electric system costs required to meet our 2035 goals.

Join us to learn about ACEEE’s new report on the role of energy efficiency in the transition to a highly renewable grid. This webinar will dive into the energy efficiency measures that are projected to be the most valuable to enable the transition while reducing costs. Attendees will hear from speakers who will provide perspectives of the role of energy efficiency in states’ decarbonization plans, as well as how energy efficiency is considered in modeling decarbonization pathways.

The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE), a nonprofit research organization, develops policies to reduce energy waste and combat climate change. Its independent analysis advances investments, programs, and behaviors that use energy more effectively and help build an equitable clean energy future.
