On December 2nd, Vice President Kamala Harris  announced that the United States is joining more than 115 nations in a commitment to double energy efficiency and to triple renewable energy capacity by 2030. The announcement came at the international climate summit COP 28‘s Leaders’ Session.

Over the past decade renewable energy in America has more than tripled and energy efficiency savings increased by about 20% between 2013 and 2021, according to the Renewables on the Rise dashboard.

The Vice President said the United States is on a path to meet these goals thanks in part to policies such as the Inflation Reduction Act.
