The Virginia Governor’s Executive Committee on Energy Efficiency. will meet on July 24, 2015, 10 a.m., at the Patrick Henry Building, Conference Room 1, 1111 East Broad Street in Richmond.
On May 11, 2015, Va. Gov. Terry McAuliffe announced the formation of a committee of public officials and private citizens to help establish strategies for Virginia to reduce retail electricity consumption by 10 percent by the year 2020. The reduction-percentage goal was originally set for 2022 by the 2007 Virginia Energy Plan, but the 2014 update of that plan accelerated the timeline. The 2014 Virginia Energy Plan is available online at http://www.dmme.virginia.gov/DE/2014_VirginiaEnergyPlan2.shtml.
The energy-efficiency committee is chaired by the Virginia Secretary of Commerce and Trade and is staffed by the Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy.
