New Year’s countdown: Our top 10 blog posts of 2019

(10 Dec 2019) As the holidays approach and this year comes to a close, we want to share 2019 highlights for ACEEE and energy efficiency.

We released our popular state and city scorecards, spotlighted exemplary US efficiency programs, and ranked the greenest (and meanest) vehicles. Our Halfway There report showed how energy efficiency can halve US energy use by 2050 and get us halfway to our climate goals.

In addition, we celebrated the fourth annual Energy Efficiency Day, connected professionals at conferences including our inaugural forum on connected and autonomous vehicles, and promoted energy-saving policies at the local, state, and national level.

Next year, as political candidates, governments, and companies increasingly focus on climate change, energy efficiency will be more important than ever. To help you prepare, we revisit our 10 most-read blog posts of 2019.

9. Breaking barriers: women in energy efficiency tell their stories by Wendy Koch

Women account for only one-fourth of energy efficiency workers. To explore their experiences in this field, we asked the leader of an environmental organization and two Summer Study panel co-chairs to tell their stories. They spoke candidly, sharing both their inspiration and advice.
