A new study finds that a national energy policy that targets the fossil fuel industry, like the one President Donald Trump has called for, could help reduce climate change.
The study, by the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis, estimates that energy efficiency policies that target oil, coal and gas companies could save up to $200 billion annually over the next 25 years, which could lead to significant economic growth.
The energy efficiency goals would also reduce emissions, according to the study, which was released Thursday by the Center for American Progress Action Fund and Brookings Institution.
The Institute for the Future, a non-profit think tank focused on promoting the American economy, has long advocated for energy efficiency as a way to help America reach its climate goals.
The institute has long promoted the idea that it could reduce the use of fossil fuels.
It has been instrumental in promoting a new kind of energy strategy called “smart grid” technologies that aim to reduce energy consumption and make electric grids more efficient.
Trump and his administration have been considering energy efficiency targets as part of their efforts to combat climate change, but energy efficiency has been largely absent from the conversation.
The new report suggests that energy optimization could be a key element in achieving the U of A’s goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 25 percent by 2030.
The report recommends that energy policy be aimed at reducing energy use by 15 percent by 2020.
The authors say that, by 2030, energy efficiency could cut the cost of energy to U of T by $200 million.
In a separate report released Thursday, the Institute of Energy Economics found that a nationwide energy policy focusing on energy efficiency and renewable energy could reduce greenhouse gas pollution by 25 million metric tons.
The research found that the energy efficiency target could save the U the equivalent of a 1,000 square-foot apartment.
The findings of the new report, released in partnership with the Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Alliance (EEERA), the trade association for the UofT Institute for Sustainable Energy, came after a meeting between the president and EERA representatives in March, the Washington Times reported.
The president and the organization’s president, Robert Wurzelbacher, discussed energy efficiency, the institute said in a statement.
“We’re excited about this progress and how this technology can help us to meet our energy-related goals,” Wurzelsbacher said.
The two groups are working together on a new study on energy optimization, the Times reported, and the two sides agreed to discuss the new findings with EERA officials in March.
The administration’s focus on the energy sector is a shift from previous energy policies, such as those of President George W. Bush and President Barack Obama, who focused on fossil fuel production and production of other energy sectors, such a coal industry.
Energy efficiency measures, like energy efficiency certificates, have long been considered part of energy efficiency efforts, and many energy companies have adopted the measures.
But it’s unclear how much of an impact energy efficiency would have on greenhouse gas emission reductions.
For example, energy sector experts say that many energy efficiency measures are still not well-suited for the use in large cities, which rely heavily on coal.
In an interview with Bloomberg in March 2017, former Energy Secretary Steven Chu said the administration would not take the issue of energy-efficiency to the court to make a decision on energy-intensive manufacturing.
“I would say, well, look, we are going to be very careful in how we use that word,” Chu said.
“But that does not mean we are not going to take the best measures that we can.”
The Trump administration is expected to announce a set of energy policies for 2020 in March or April.
The IEA and EEA are not the only environmental groups that are working on energy policy in the United States.
The Sierra Club, an environmental group based in Washington, D.C., is also working on a study on how to make energy efficiency more accessible to American consumers.
“As we see the administration’s energy plan move toward an energy efficiency goal, we know it is a win-win for the environment and the American consumer,” Sierra Club senior policy analyst John Grisham said in an email to Bloomberg.
