This is the May 8, 2008 hearing on "Negawatts: The Role of Efficiency Policies in Climate Legislation," held before the U.S. House Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming. From the opening statement of Edward J. Markey: "When we look into the energy and climate solutions toolbox, we usually focus on exciting new technologies like high-powered wind turbines, thin-film solar cells, or carbon capture and sequestration. Today's hearing, however, is about the less eye-catching, but equally important solutions that improve energy efficiency, demand-side management, better building and appliance standards, lighting retrofits, and the host of other technologies and policies that enable us to use electricity more intelligently." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Paul A. DeCotis, Dian Grueneich, George Sakellaris, Steven Kline, and Robert Cowart.
