The Alliance Commission on National Energy Efficiency Policy released a report with recommendations that could double the energy productivity of the U.S. by 2030.
The report found that a doubling of energy productivity would reduce U.S. carbon dioxide pollution down to four billion tons per year by 2030, which is 33 percent below 2005 levels.

The commission is a diverse coalition of energy leaders from energy utilities, academia, industry, and environmental groups.
