As the demand for energy around the world grows, it creates more pollution and drives climate change.
Becoming more energy efficient is the cheapest and fastest way to cut energy bills and reduce carbon pollution. NRDC conducts research, partners with manufacturers, and advocates for policies that create dramatic savings. In the United States, we've helped strengthen national standards for heat pumps and create the first-ever regional efficiency standards for air conditioners and furnaces. We’ve also worked with officials in China, India, and Chile to adopt stronger energy-efficiency policies.
