The E2e Mission
E2e’s mission is to solve one of the most perplexing energy puzzles of our time—the efficiency gap. Study after study has shown potential for huge savings and hefty cuts in carbon emissions from widespread adoption of energy efficient technologies. Yet these gains have failed to fully materialize. Scholars can’t say why. Theories abound. Solutions remain elusive.
Critical questions addressed by E2e include:
- What are the most effective ways to encourage individuals and businesses to undertake energy efficiency investments?
- What is the rate of return from alternative energy efficiency investments for individuals and businesses?
- Which public sector energy-efficiency programs have the highest rate of return?
The E2e Strategies
E2e unites top researchers in economics, engineering and other fields to close the energy efficiency gap using transparent and state-of-the-art analytical techniques.
In addition to conducting research, E2e communicates results to policymakers and the public to maximize impact. Infusing the creation of knowledge with a commitment to non-partisan outreach, E2e aims to create a cheaper and greener future.
