The Alliance to Save Energy praised President Obama’s commitment to “double investment in energy efficiency” in fiscal year 2012, calling it "an action that will provide an immense return to U.S. consumers and businesses alike in terms of energy and money savings as well as enhanced energy security and resource conservation."

“President Obama has carved out a key role for energy efficiency programs in achieving our nation’s overall economic goals,” said Alliance President Kateri Callahan. “We commend the president’s plans to unleash the power of American ingenuity and innovation in the energy arena to move us towards economic recovery and continued global competitiveness.

“We look forward to working with Congress, on a bipartisan basis, to ensure that the president’s proposed Clean Energy Standard (CES) includes a prominent role for energy efficiency as a full and equal compliance option, as well as the important, complementary efficiency policies already identified,” Callahan said.

The White House said that the CES would be “coupled with smart policies that will help American families and businesses save money by saving energy” and “paired with energy efficiency programs that will lower consumers’ energy bills,” including stronger appliance efficiency standards, tax credits for energy efficiency upgrades and Home Star.

The Alliance also praised the president’s plan to more than double total investment to date for the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E), which will support “transformational and cutting edge energy research with real-world applications ranging from grid technology and power electronics to batteries and energy storage.”
