Join Sustainable Pittsburgh, the Energy Efficiency Alliance, and Franklin Energy for the SCDN Policy Connection: Activating Carbon-Emissions Reduction through Energy Efficiency Strategies webinar on Tuesday, December 5th to learn more about how energy efficiency can benefit buildings, transportation, industry, and other sectors through cost savings, improved health, electricity reliability, and meaningful carbon-emissions reductions.
Featured presentations will be given by the Energy Efficiency Alliance on resources that are available now and what can be expected in the future to support energy efficiency technologies and practices. Duquesne Light Company and Franklin Energy will provide information that small businesses and local governments can use to advance their carbon reduction goals through energy efficiency.
The program will also feature a preview of the upcoming Carbon Reduction Sprint, a fun and friendly, 6-month competition for organizations to compete against peers in earning points for actions that advance carbon-emissions reduction.
Energy efficiency offers one of the most compelling opportunities to reduce carbon emissions, yet its benefits depend on how communities, businesses and other organizations commit to taking action now and for the long-term. Through energy efficiency, buildings, transportation, industry, and other sectors can benefit from cost savings, improved health, electricity reliability, and carbon-emissions reduction potential.
Opportunities to decarbonize via energy efficiency exist for schools and municipal buildings, small businesses, restaurants, commercial buildings, and more! Moreover, Pennsylvania expects to receive at least $67 million for clean energy from resources activated by the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. Combined with uncapped tax incentives available from the Inflation Reduction Act for existing or new decarbonization strategies, energy efficiency is poised to be a key component of any decarbonization strategy.
