Supporting energy efficiency standards

Have stated support for energy efficiency standards (Twitter, April 2015)

Nat Assoc of Mfg ‏@ShopFloorNAM Apr 21 From Shopfloor Blog: Energy Efficiency Legislation Finally Heads to President’s Desk http://bit.ly/1ODaonH (Link to NAM Shopfloor.org blog, 'Energy Efficiency Legislation Finally Heads to President’s Desk', April 2015) 'The bill would establish a program called “Tenant Star” that would certify and recognize commercial building tenants for achieving high levels of energy efficiency, as well as require the General Services Administration to develop model commercial leasing provisions to encourage commercial building owners and tenants to invest in cost-effective energy and water efficiency measures. Energy efficiency and conservation offer immediate and cost-effective opportunities to reduce energy cost inputs both in the public and private sectors.'

Supporting specific energy efficiency standards  (Twitter, April 2016)

Extract from Source:

READ: Even uncommon voices can find common ground on #energy efficiency by @REisenbergNAM & @NRDC http://bit.ly/1VobbAU [Link to The Hill]: Washington, D.C., has earned a reputation in recent years as a city plagued by hyper-partisan gridlock.  Yet our two organizations – which often disagree – have found common ground on energy efficiency.  It’s instructive to look at why both the National Association of Manufacturers and the Natural Resources Defense Council both support it. [...]  This week the U.S. Senate continues debating a broad energy bill. It’s been nearly a decade since comprehensive energy policy was enacted.  We disagree about some elements of the NAM-supported bill, but we do agree on much of the energy efficiency policy.  We both support provisions in the bill that would help states adopt better building codes, assist small and medium-sized manufacturers with energy efficiency measures, and redouble existing efforts to develop new technologies at national labs and elsewhere.  NAM and NRDC have long supported the SAVE (Sensible Accounting to Value Energy) Act, introduced as an amendment to the bill, which would help homeowners use mortgage financing to make their homes more energy efficient. We support financing programs operated by many cities and states (called Property Assessed Clean Energy, or “PACE”) that allow homeowners to pay for efficiency improvements through an assessment on their property tax bill.

Strongly supporting energy efficiency standards

InfluenceMap Comment:

Advocating for policy makers to support specific energy efficiency standards (Press release, March 2014)

Extract from Source:

National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) Senior Vice President of Policy and Government Relations Aric Newhouse issued this statement in support of passage of H.R. 2126, the Energy Efficiency Improvement Act of 2014, which would promote a number of energy-efficiency measures: “Energy-efficiency measures are a win-win for manufacturers. They spur the development of new technologies to lower energy costs while allowing manufacturers to create jobs and keep a critical advantage in the global market.

Not supporting energy efficiency targets

InfluenceMap Comment:

Directly advocating to policymakers to support weaker US energy efficiency targets (Joint letter to Congresspersons, August 2016)

Extract from Source:

We the undersigned businesses and trade associations are writing to express our strong support for the policies included in the Energy Policy Modernization Act of 2015 (S. 2012) and the North American Energy Security and Infrastructure Act (H.R. 8) that promote energy efficiency in industrial, commercial, and residential applications and urge you to include these provisions in the final conferenced package. We support low to no-cost, no-mandate provisions that advance energy efficiency, while preserving the critical role of government oversight. [...] We support the building codes section 1001 of S. 2012. We urge conferees to retain the current Senate language which supports strong, updated model building energy codes and which were developed through a bipartisan, transparent process. Section 1001 retains state authority over building code adoption and clarifies the role of the Department of Energy as one of offering technical assistance. We are concerned that the provisions in H.R.8 provide DOE with too much authority over the costs of building materials and sets a precedent of excessive federal intervention. [...] We also support extension of the energy efficiency goals of the Federal government. Section 3116 of H.R. 8 extends the energy efficiency goals for two years at 3% per year. We prefer the longer term, yet slightly less aggressive, goal of 2.5% per year reduction for 10 years as was included in Section 1017 of S. 2012 as it will encourage agencies to make energy efficiency investments on a continuing basis.

Not supporting energy efficiency standards

InfluenceMap Comment:

Evidence suggests organization does not support energy efficiency standards (NAM Shopfloor Blog, January 2016)

Extract from Source:

This year’s slate of bad news includes leasing moratoria, methane regulations, a well control rule and an alphabet soup of regulations from the Department of Energy on the efficiency of a wide range of goods that go beyond what manufacturers can actually achieve.
