National Energy Policy


National policies to improve energy efficiency can reduce oil imports, improve the reliability of the U.S. electric grid, save consumers money, reduce air pollution, create jobs, and reduce prices. The opportunities for realizing these energy efficiency savings are distributed throughout many end-uses, from manufacturing systems to transportation choices to home appliances. Federal policies that promote efficient investment in each sector and end-use are critical to tackling climate change, economic development, and job creation. In addition, federal agencies like the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) provide essential nationwide energy efficiency programs, like the labeling program ENERGY STAR and the data gathering work at the Energy Information Administration.
