We initiated this review to examine the validity and accuracy of the reported energy savings for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agencys (EPAs) ENERGYSTAR program. This was part of our agenda to assess new approaches to environmental protection. We specifically sought to determine whether the savings reported were valid and fully supportable. ENERGY STAR is a voluntary program designed to help businesses and individuals enhance their energy efficiency. In 2006, the ENERGY STAR program reported avoiding a total of 37.6 million metric tons of carbon equivalent. It further reported that ENERGY STAR helped prevent greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those from 25 million vehicles while savings Americans $14 billion on their energy bills.
