Last week, a high-level commission issued a report outlining how the U.S. could double energy productivity by 2030.

In tonight’s State of the Union address, President Obama backed those findings and called for a partnership between federal and state governments to cut energy consumption in half in the next two decades.

“I’m also issuing a new goal for America: let’s cut in half the energy wasted by our homes and businesses over the next twenty years. The states with the best ideas to create jobs and lower energy bills by constructing more efficient buildings will receive federal support to help make it happen,” said the President.
