ACEEE publishes must-read report on tax reform to encourage energy efficiency

The American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ACEEE) has published Tax Reforms to Advance Energy Efficiency, a report that suggests policies in six areas that could be used to encourage energy efficiency: existing energy efficiency tax incentives; depreciation; low-cost strategies for promoting investment in manufacturing; fees on emissions; treatment of expenses in business taxes; and ending or reducing subsidies for fossil fuels

As I wrote here, there are vast opportunities to be had in efficiency gains.  We must invest in and realize these gains.  ACEEE's report points the way to smart policies that could propel these investments as part of overall Federal tax reform.
