CLASP has supported energy efficiency standards and labeling programs in the U.S. since 2009 through technical analysis to the U.S. Department of Energy, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the California Energy Commission, the Federal Trade Commission, and other key policymakers and stakeholders.
Fossil fuels are used in over two-thirds of all electricity production in the United States. Energy efficiency standards and labeling have the potential to reduce U.S. energy consumption by 14% in 2025, significantly mitigating U.S. greenhouse gas emissions.
In collaboration with a diverse network of partners, CLASP utilizes funding from the ClimateWorks Foundation to support the development and enforcement of stringent standards, labels, and test procedures through technical assistance to U.S. federal and state agencies, as well as to facilitate the introduction of super-efficient products into the North American market.
CLASP provides technical assistance to various U.S. stakeholders in support of appliance energy efficiency, including policymakers, utilities, and industry.
