DOE efficiency standards quietly slashing energy, emissions (Greenwire - subscription)
The Department of Energy's efficiency standards in 2014 saved 5.3 quadrillion British thermal units, or "quads," of energy, more than U.S. EPA's Energy Star program and utility efficiency programs, said the Appliance Standards Awareness Project. Only corporate average fuel economy standards for cars and trucks saved more energy. In 2014, U.S. economic sectors consumed a total of 98.3 quads of energy.
