In 1991, October was designated National Energy Awareness Month by presidential declaration. According to the White House, Energy Awareness Month was part of a broader “national effort to highlight how central energy is to our national prosperity, security and environmental well-being.” Then, in 2011, Energy Awareness Month was renamed Energy Action Month in an effort to encourage Americans to actively save energy and water, and to build a more robust economy.
Here at CLEAResult, we’re excited to celebrate Energy Action Month throughout the month of October. It’s a great opportunity to share knowledge and celebrate what we know best–energy, and how best to use it!
As the largest energy efficiency advisor in North America, we draw on our experiences in the field to inform the people around us. Over the next four weeks, CLEAResult will be sharing educational, actionable information on all things energy-related.
Decoding the jargon
There are so many terms and acronyms in the energy business, it’s hard to keep track of them all. So stay tuned as one component of our Energy Action Month campaign aims to educate and familiarize our audiences with new “words of the day,” which will provide clear definitions for these often-confusing terms.
Awareness Leads to Action
Education leads to awareness, awareness leads to action, and action leads to impact. Once a week, we’ll pose a question to our audiences and follow up throughout the day with fun facts and calls to action. How much do you really know about energy? Follow us on Twitter and Facebook to find out!
Energy Forum 2017
Energy Forum, CLEAResult’s annual conference, takes place in Austin, Texas during Energy Action Month. During the Forum, we’ll share photos and quotes from our dynamic keynotes and sessions. Make sure to follow the hashtag #CREF17 on Twitter to engage with us and check out the action!
Energy Efficiency Day 2017
October 5 is the second annual Energy Efficiency Day! We will celebrate with the release of a full-scale campaign that highlights one of our newest residential service line programs. This program has the potential for tremendous impact for low to middle income families across the country. Check back on our news page and social media outlets to find out more about our Community-Based Distribution program.
Corporate Social Responsbility
In 2016, we heightened our focus on sustainable business practices and committed to better understanding and measuring our impact. This Energy Action month, we plan to share the impact we make on our clients, people, planet and the communities in which we operate with the release of our first-ever Corporate Social Responsibility Report!
Recapping the Action
We’ll wrap up Energy Action Month with a follow-up article, summarizing our responses and spotlighting our top engagements.
