National standards that require appliances and equipment to be more energy efficient do more than save energy and reduce utility bills. They also spur economic growth and create jobs — a lot of jobs. In fact, our new report reveals that they created or sustained nearly 300,000 jobs in 2016 and are projected to support 553,000 jobs in 2030. These jobs benefit every US state.
The Department of Energy (DOE) issued new efficiency standards today for commercial and industrial pumps that are based on efficiency levels negotiated by manufacturers, efficiency advocates, and other stakeholders. In addition to establishing the first-ever national efficiency standards for pumps, the final rule also provides a mechanism for energy efficiency programs to incentivize high-efficiency pump packages.
Proposed Standards Would Save Businesses Billions
Washington, D.C.—The Department of Energy (DOE) proposed new efficiency standards today that would slash commercial rooftop air conditioner energy use by about 30%. The proposed standards would achieve the largest national energy savings of any standard ever issued by the U.S. Department of Energy.
Did you know that motors use about half of the electricity in the U.S.? From large industrial machines, to commercial equipment, to home appliances, to even our computers and smart phones, motors are everywhere. Unfortunately we don’t have many details on how the energy use is distributed among the motors’ loads because it has been over 15 years since U.S. Department of Energy [no-glossary](DOE)[/no-glossary] commissioned the last national motor study, and the U.S.
With Americans Stocking Up for Labor Day Cookouts, New DOE Standards Will Make It Cheaper to Keep Beer Cold and Meat Frozen

Washington, D.C.—A new analysis of devices and equipment commonly found in U.S. homes and businesses concludes that these products, with more than 2 billion in use, consume more energy each year than many large countries use to power their entire economies.
New Study Finds Typical Household Will Save $10,000 from 2010-25; Enormous National Energy and Water Savings Gained
Washington, D.C.—National efficiency standards for appliances, lighting, and other equipment will save consumers and businesses more than $1.1 trillion and dramatically reduce greenhouse gas pollution and other emissions by 2035, according to The Efficiency Boom: Cashing In on the Savings from Appliance Standards, a study released today.
Since the 1980s, energy efficiency appliance standards have been saving consumers money and creating jobs throughout the U.S. These standards translate into savings when new, energy-efficient equipment is purchased, reducing utility bills for consumers and businesses.
