Doubling the Pace of Energy Efficiency Progress

February 29, 2024 | 11:00am - 12:00pm EST

At COP28, 132 nations, including the United States, committed to working together to make energy efficiency the “first fuel” and double the rate of energy efficiency improvements. But what will it take to actually go from 2% annual energy efficiency improvement to 4%, both in the U.S. and across the world?  

Join experts from the International Energy Agency and the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy for an engaging discussion on how to accelerate recent trends and leverage policy opportunities to achieve those ambitious outcomes while prioritizing equitable approaches.  


Mark Kresowik, Senior Policy Director, American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) 

Mark supports the success of the members of ACEEE’s policy team and its partners shaping decisions at the local, state, utility, and federal levels across every part of the economy as we accelerate ambition for improving energy efficiency and centering those most historically overburdened and underserved in our communities.


Dr. Nicholas Howarth, Policy Analyst, Office of Energy Efficiency & Inclusive Transitions, International Energy Agency (IEA)

Nicholas leads the IEA’s Energy Efficiency Market Report, the Agency’s primary annual analysis on global developments in energy efficiency markets and policy. It explores recent trends in energy intensity, demand and efficiency related investment, policy, and technology. The most recent report focused on what is entailed with the target to double global energy efficiency progress, a target that was ultimately adopted as a key part of the UAE COP28 Consensus Agreement.
