"The Appliance and Equipment Standards Program’s current priority is to realize, by 2030, energy savings from appliance standards avoiding at least 3 billion metric tons of carbon emissions in support of the President’s Climate Action Plan. Specifically, the current schedule includes:
– 2014-2016: Complete 26 standards rulemakings, covering 30 products
– 2017-2020: Complete 10 standards rulemakings, covering 12 products" (DOE, 2016b)

By 2025, the energy use intensity (energy use per square foot the buildings sector will be at least 20% lower than in 2010 (DOE, 2016b)

Efficiency standards already adopted during the Obama administration will reduce CO2 emissions by 2.2 billion metric tons through 2030 (ASAP, 2016)
