The U.S. Senate is considering the Energy Savings and Industrial Competitiveness Act (S. 1392), introduced by Sens. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) and Rob Portman (R-OH).
This bipartisan legislation will improve energy efficiency and reduce energy costs in the residential, commercial and industrial sectors, while boosting competitiveness for American businesses.
Energy efficiency is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to reduce energy consumption and achieve savings, and should be a part of America’s comprehensive domestic energy strategy. We applaud Senators Shaheen and Portman for their bipartisan leadership on this important issue and urge the Senate to pass the bill.
Chemistry is responsible for many of the energy efficiency technologies that enable the energy Americans use to go further than ever before. The use of chemistry in energy efficient products and technologies saves Americans up to $85 billion in energy costs every year.
