About 2xEP

2xEP aims to double Australia’s energy productivity by 2030 (from a 2010 baseline). The project is a collaborative process that plots a step change in national energy productivity - essential to boost general economic productivity, improve competitiveness and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The program is led by a steering committee of leaders in business and research. It extends across the national economy and into key sectors such as agriculture, manufacturing, mining, freight, passenger transport and the built environment.

2xEP is a project of the Australian Alliance for Energy Productivity (A2EP)

Our international partners are established leaders in energy efficiency and decentralised energy. With a shared vision of promoting energy productivity, we are part of a network of unparalleled information on best practice and latest developments.

ASE-Logo-Color-Anniv The Alliance to Save Energy (US)
Founded in 1977, the Alliance to Save Energy is a non-profit coalition of business, government, environmental and consumer leaders. The Alliance to Save Energy supports energy efficiency as a cost-effective energy resource under existing market conditions. It advocates energy-efficiency policies that minimise costs to society and lessen greenhouse gas emissions. The organisation has over 170 affiliates (or members) and its activities include research, educational programs, policy advocacy and promotion of technology development.

The Energy Saving Trust (EST) was set up by the UK Government after the 1992 Rio Earth Summit and is one of the UK's leading organisations addressing climate change.  It gives impartial, accurate and authoritative advice on how to reduce carbon emissions and help people to save money on their energy bills. EST provides services, tools and information to households and the public and private sector including an information hub, consultancy, certification, testing, verification and calculators.

ss_logo_11 American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (US)
The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) is a non-profit organisation that acts as a catalyst to advance energy efficiency policies, programs, technologies, investments and behaviours.  It fulfils its mission by conducting in-depth technical and policy assessments; advising policymakers and program managers; working collaboratively with businesses and public interest groups; organising conferences and workshops; encouraging media to cover energy efficiency policy and issues; and publishing reports, books and conference proceedings.

ss_logo_10 The World Alliance for Decentralised Energy (WADE)
WADE works to accelerate the worldwide development of high efficiency cogeneration, onsite power and decentralized renewable energy systems that deliver substantial economic and environmental benefits. In an effort to raise the profile of cogeneration as a climate change mitigation strategy in the 1997 UNFCCC climate change negotiations the International Cogeneration Alliance was founded. In 2002 the group changed its name to WADE and broadened its scope to include all manner of DE technologies.

a2se_logo_ease European Alliance to Save Energy (EU)
The European Alliance to Save Energy brings together some of Europe’s most prominent and knowledgeable energy efficiency advocates from the world of business, politics and campaigning. It believes that the EU’s current approach to energy efficiency lacks vision, so its members have come together to work as a united force to show that by advancing energy efficiency in Europe, in particular by supporting existing technologies, the EU can rapidly achieve a healthier economy, a cleaner environment and greater energy security.

ss_logo_4 The European Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (EU)
The European Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ECEEE) is an independent, membership-based, non-profit association founded in 1993.  Its goal is to stimulate energy efficiency through information exchange and pan-European co-operation.  It provides governments, industry, research institutes and citizen organisations with reliable, evidence-based information. The ECEEE has more than 75 member organisations and over 450 individual members.

ss_logo_7 The Alliance for an Energy Efficient Economy (INDIA)
Established in 2008, The Alliance for an Energy Efficient Economy (AEEE) is an industry association which facilitates collaboration among India’s energy efficiency industries and service providers. It enables India’s energy efficiency stakeholders to convene on a common platform that supports the Government’s energy conservation programmes and energy efficiency policy implementation, market development, and thereby EE improvements in all sectors of India’s economy.

The Alliance to Save Energy promotes energy efficiency worldwide to achieve a healthier economy, a cleaner environment, and greater energy security.

Founded in 1977, the Alliance to Save Energy is a non-profit coalition of business, government, environmental and consumer leaders. The Alliance to Save Energy supports energy efficiency as a cost-effective energy resource under existing market conditions and advocates energy-efficiency policies that minimize costs to society and individual consumers, and that lessen greenhouse gas emissions and their impact on the global climate.

To carry out its mission, the Alliance to Save Energy undertakes research, educational programs, and policy advocacy, designs and implements energy-efficiency projects, promotes technology development and deployment, and builds public-private partnerships, in the US and other countries.

More than 150 corporations and business trade associations work together through the Alliance to promote greater investment in cost-effective energy efficiency. Alliance Associates participate in a range of Alliance programs and activities, including international trade and investment, the Government Energy Leadership Action Team, and policy breakfasts with decision makers and other noted speakers.

The Alliance to Save Energy is headquartered in Washington DC and has around 50 staff, as well as collaborators from around the world. Its Board includes CEOs, presidents, and senior executives of companies, associations, consumer and environmental organizations, as well as officials from state government, universities, and law firms.
