AEE joins in sixth annual national campaign urging everyone to save money, cut pollution, create jobs

October 6, 2021, Washington, D.C. — Today, Advanced Energy Economy joins in the celebration of the 6th annual national Energy Efficiency Day (#EEDay2021) along with more than 8,800 regional and national organizations, businesses, utilities, universities, and individuals. In a blog post published today, AEE notes that “less is more when it comes to energy,” as technologies and products that save energy also relieve stress on the nation’s power grid, improve resilience, and reduce costs for all consumers. With Congress currently considering landmark advanced energy investment in pending infrastructure and budget reconciliation bills, it’s more important than ever to recognize energy efficiency – the cheapest, quickest way to meet our energy needs, cut utility bills, and reduce pollution.

Energy efficiency is already a national economic engine, amassing a U.S. workforce of nearly 2.1 million at the end of last year. Ranging from professional services to manufacturing, installation, and construction, these jobs are local to all 50 states, and EE Day reminds us of  the positive impact of these technologies and services. See the broad range of Energy Efficiency Day participants here, including national and regional energy efficiency groups, cities, state agencies, public utility commissions, educational institutions, companies, and several AEE corporate members and state partners. 

AEE and our member companies are dedicated to finding solutions to reach 100% clean energy in an affordable, reliable, and cost-effective way. In honor of Energy Efficiency Day, we invite participation in this nationwide campaign by posting messages and content across your social media channels, on your website, in newsletters, and blog posts. Invite your business partners, stakeholders and customers to join as well. Energy efficiency is an integral segment of the broad advanced energy sector we represent, and we hope to highlight its frequently under-recognized beneficial impacts today, and everyday.
