Introduced in September 2015, The North American Energy Security and Infrastructure Act of 2016 (S.2012) was passed in the Senate in April 2016. The bill contains provisions that would be the most significant energy efficiency policy package since 2007. It moves forward on energy efficiency, toward consumer energy bill savings, more jobs, and cleaner air.
This bill amends the Energy Conservation and Production Act, the Energy Policy and Conservation Act (EPCA), and the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 with respect to energy efficiency in buildings and appliances. The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy of the Department of Energy (DOE) shall conduct activities with respect to manufacturing energy efficiency.
