A groundbreaking study released by Architecture 2030 this week shows that an investment of just $21.6 billion towards building energy efficiency would replace 22.3 conventional coal-fired plants, reduce CO2 emissions by 86.7 MMT, save 204 billion cubic feet of natural gas and 10.7 million barrels of oil, save consumers $8.46 billion in energy bills and create 216,000 new jobs.

The 2030 Blueprint study gives a comparative analysis of three approaches to addressing climate change - building energy efficiency, 'clean' coal (with carbon capture and sequestration) and nuclear power - while laying a new roadmap for solving the global warming and US economic crises. This plan, the 2030 Blueprint, is generating excitement amongst many diverse industries and groups for its practicality and achievability.
