While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

    New Energy Needs Energy Efficiency

    World Energy Rankings Suggest Countries Need Energy Efficiency to Meet Paris Goals

    June 26, 2018 (American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy)

    “…No country came close to a perfect score [in new rankings from the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy], and the average remained the same as in 2016 — 51 out of a possible 100 points. Overall, Germany and Italy tie for first place this year with 75.5 points, closely followed by France (73.5), the United Kingdom (73), and Japan (67)…Within sectors, Germany scored best for national efforts, including cross-cutting targets and programs. Spain nabbed the top spot for buildings-related efforts, while Japan led on industry and France on transportation...In a troubling development, the United States slid from 8th place in 2016 to 10th in 2018…

    “…The current administration continues to dismantle key regulations…[Its] focus on energy production rather than efficiency has meant that progress on federal energy efficiency policies has largely stalled…On a positive note, the most improved country this year is Mexico…[It] sits just below the United States and Canada in the rankings this year, suggesting that the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) may be playing a role in harmonizing efforts…Energy efficiency will need to account for almost half of all the greenhouse gas emission reductions necessary through 2040 to limit the global increase in temperature to 2 degrees Celsius…” click here for more
