The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy convened a one-day symposium to highlight international energy efficiency best practices, with a particular focus on opportunities for improvement in the United States.

At the event, ACEEE released its biennial International Scorecard, which examines the energy efficiency policies and performance of the world’s 25 largest energy-consuming countries. The scorecard evaluates countries based on 35 metrics and shows how all can substantially improve their energy efficiency.

The symposium featured four panels that explored: (1) scorecard findings; (2) lessons learned from high-performing countries; (3) opportunities for the United States; and (4) notable efforts and opportunities for global companies.

ICCT researcher Zifei Yang participated in panel 3, with a presentation on Fuel Economy Standards and Feebates.
