Alliance to Save Energy Launches Web-Based Index Of State Energy-Efficiency Policies

Washington, D.C., October 3 – Today the Alliance to Save Energy’s online searchable State Energy Efficiency Policy Index went live. This comprehensive index allows policy makers, state officials, advocates, and citizens to search easily for energy-efficiency laws, by state or by policy topic. Many new energy-efficiency policy initiatives are tested at the state level, so this educational resource will help disseminate and share such policies among states and allow them to learn from each other.

With hundreds of energy efficiency laws documented in the index, this resource shows that states are leading the way to an energy-efficient future – but the benefits of energy efficiency are far from fully tapped! The Alliance will continue to update the index so that users can find the most recent information quickly and easily.

The index is organized by policy issue: appliance standards, building codes, greenhouse gas emission cap & trade programs, energy-efficiency funds, public benefits funds, tax incentives, transportation initiatives, and other legislation. The index also allows users to click on an interactive map of the United States to download a full listing of energy-efficiency laws on the book in each state.

“Paired with our monthly electronic State Energy Efficiency Policy Bulletin, which tracks pending legislative and regulatory action in the states, the Alliance is the ‘one-stop’ shop for information on state energy-efficiency policies,” said Alliance President Kateri Callahan. “The Alliance stands ready to help states fill in the gaps on their state energy-efficiency policy checklists.”
