Founded in 1980 in the aftermath of a major oil crisis, ACEEE has advanced energy efficiency policies, programs, and investments for 35 years. In that time, we have affected change in appliance and equipment standards, building codes, utility- and government-run programs, vehicle fuel efficiency, and other areas, improving energy efficiency in every sector of the economy.

As a nation, we’ve made great progress on improving component energy efficiency, saving energy in appliances, equipment, and vehicles. While that work must continue, technology is evolving that will allow us more control over systems. Systems efficiency will be more than the sum of its parts, as networked components in buildings’ environmental controls, factory assembly lines, and transportation networks will all work together to save more energy than would be possible by themselves alone. The result will be a stronger economy, more control over our energy future, and a cleaner environment.
