The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) released a white paper that analyzes the cost, energy savings and jobs impacts of the Energy Savings and Industrial Competitiveness Act of 2013 (S. 1392), which is also known as the Shaheen-Portman bill (See our Aug 26, 2013, blog post for more information). Noting that amendments being considered could change these figures, the group determined that the core bill and select amendments could, by 2030, create 172,000 jobs, save $14.7 billion, save 1.6 quadrillion BTUs of energy annually and avoid 85.1 MMT of annual CO2 emissions.
