WASHINGTON, D.C. — Improvements in motor systems and management can yield significant energy savings, up to 42 percent, according to a recently revised ACEEE reference manual. The book, Energy-Efficient Motor Systems: A Handbook on Technology, Program, and Policy Opportunities, was released today by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE).
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today the House and Senate conferees released their report on the Farm Bill, retaining much of the funding for the Energy Title (Title IX) that was added by the Senate. Of the $405 million for Title IX, $115 million is targeted at energy efficiency and renewable audits, loans, and grants to farmers. The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE), as part of a broad coalition of other groups, worked with Senate Agriculture staff to develop this title.
WASHINGTON, D.C. — The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) commends Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) and his staff for the inclusion of the Energy Title in his farm bill introduced on November 2, 2001. "We applaud the Senator for recognizing the need to address energy issues in this important sector of our economy, which has received far less attention than it deserves," said Steven Nadel, ACEEE's Executive Director.
