The Council of Competitiveness has endeavored for more than 25 years to help the United States reach its economic potential, advocating for reduction in debt and unemployment, promoting exports, and encouraging greater energy prosperity. At a recent meeting, the organization, along with the Alliance to Save Energy and the US Department of Energy, announced the start of a yearlong initiative, Accelerate Energy Productivity 2030, which aims to encourage the nation’s efforts to increase domestic energy productivity by 100 percent by 2030 from 2010 levels. The three groups have planned additional assemblies in North Carolina, Minnesota, and Washington state to discuss policies and field recommendations throughout 2015.
