The first Power of Information workshop was designed to help policy-makers understand the power of energy efficiency information to motivate change and to discuss how to meet the increasing demand for public disclosure of this information. On the first day, participants learned about the many voluntary and legislative initiatives across the country to give the public better information about the energy efficiency of commercial buildings. On the second day, participants discussed priorities for EPA to prepare for the challenges — and tremendous opportunity — that these initiatives present.
