New partnership to accelerate global energy efficiency efforts


Washington, DC, U.S.A. — (METERING.COM) — April 22, 2013

The Collaborative Labeling & Appliance Standards Program (CLASP), the Global Buildings Performance Network (GBPN), and the Institute for Industrial Productivity (IIP) have launched the EnergyEfficiency 2030 partnership to drive best practices to reduce the energy use of appliances, buildings, and industry.

Collectively these account for more than two-thirds of the world’s end-use energy consumption, and can provide one-third of the solution to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions globally by 2020.

EnergyEfficiency 2030 will work at the intersections of appliances, buildings, and industry, including  sustainable cities, emerging technologies, building materials and systems, industrial clusters, and supply chains.

The initiative will leverage the partners’ collective technical expertise and global networks to provide decision makers with holistic, cost effective energy efficiency solutions.

CLASP, GBPN, and IIP are independent non-profit organizations operating globally, regionally, and nationally, with teams in China, India, Europe, and the United States.
