National Energy Efficiency Day
October 5, 2016
On October 5, 2016, a network of groups and partners across the country will join together to promote the benefits of energy efficiency, for the first-ever, nationwide, Energy Efficiency Day campaign. This social media and press effort aims to raise awareness among the public and media by organizing participants to share related content, stories and concrete examples of the positive impact of energy efficiency.
- Highlight positive, nonpartisan messaging about energy efficiency
- Show the positive impact of energy efficiency across a range of energy users
- Share concrete, effective ways to save energy and money
Opportunities to Participate:
Government, corporate, and industrial partners can help support Energy Efficiency Day 2016 by sharing appropriate content and reaching out to the media on and before October 15, 2016. Help amplify the campaign’s energy efficiency messages via your communications channels:
- Use the campaign’s sample social media posts and memes (or your own) to direct visitors to energy efficiency tips on your own website.
- Write and post a blog about your energy efficiency success story, tips, or stories ahead of the 2016 Energy Efficiency Day.
- Issue your own press statement urging your audiences to save energy, save money.
