Opposing energy efficiency targets

InfluenceMap Comment:

Opposing Clean Power Plan and, consequentially, energy efficiency targets (NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons, EHS Today, August 2015)

Extract from Source:

"This regulation will be exceptionally difficult for manufacturers to meet and will increase energy prices and threaten electric reliability [...] we are disappointed the Obama Administration has chosen to pursue this path,” said National Association of Manufacturers President and CEO Jay Timmons.“Manufacturers are already building more efficient power plants, factories, cars and appliances, all of which are leading to lower emissions. We need policies that foster continued innovation, encourage new investments and allow manufacturers to remain competitive – not ones that punish and penalize. This regulation and the president’s Climate Regulatory Action Plan are not the answer. We will keep all options on the table, including litigation, to protect manufacturers’ ability to compete in the global marketplace.”

Mixed on energy efficiency standards

InfluenceMap Comment:

Has stated support for 'reasonable' US fuel economy standards, stressing that they should not have negative impact on broader economic concerns (NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons, NAM website 2011)

Extract from Source:

National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) President and CEO Jay Timmons released this statement today regarding a plan by the White Hous to nearly double U.S. fuel economy standards by 2025: “The agreement reached between the White House and the auto industry on new fuel standards is a positive development. Reasonable fuel economy standards based on sound technological and economic grounds are critical not only to the auto industry, but also to the manufacturing supply chain. Fuel savings must be achieved without compromising jobs. This is an example of government and job creators working together in partnership to achieve mutually shared goals. This type of consensus building should serve as a model for future rulemaking.”
