Energy Efficiency Advocates Support Sen. Shaheen
SMACNA co-hosted a small dinner on Capitol Hill in April along with several business and energy efficiency organizations in support of Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-New Hampshire) and her energy efficiency initiatives.
Sen. Shaheen discussed several issues including the pending energy legislation in Congress, infrastructure, skilled training and apprenticeship program improvements as well as the upcoming Congressional agenda for 2019 and 2020.
The dinner was co-hosted by SMACNA and the Alliance for Industrial Efficiency (AIE). SMACNA is a leading member and steering committee director of the Alliance. The Alliance is a national organization advocating a high efficiency economy that encourages combined heat and power (CHP) and waste heat to power (WHP) applications in industrial, commercial and institutional facilities as well as incentives for great facility efficiency.
SMACNA has a longstanding relationship with Sen. Shaheen, who is a vocal advocate of industry issues and energy efficiency legislation. Sen. Shaheen has been a Senate leader on energy efficiency policy and is the co-author of the bipartisan energy efficiency legislation, The Energy Savings Through Public-Private Partnerships Act (S. 239) and The Energy Savings and Industrial Competitiveness Act (S. 385).
