Home » (IS-2020-141) Growing a Greener Economy: Job and Climate Impacts from Energy Efficiency Investments
This September 2020 report from ACEEE was published in September 2020. The report analyzed the impact of various energy efficiency programs across the building, transportation and industrial sectors, with estimates for net job creation, carbon emissions reductions and energy savings. A $83.5 USD investment would create 1.3M job-years and reduce CO2 emissions by 906MMT, the analysis shows. Substantial energy cost savings would result, spurring the development of long-term markets for advanced green technologies/practices and creating additional economic and environmental benefits.
