- Increases CAFE standards to 35 miles per gallon (combined fleet of light trucks and passenger cars) by model year 2020.
- Modifies the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) to start at 9 billion gallons in 2008 and increase to 36 billion gallons/year by 2022.
- Repeals two tax subsidies to offset estimated costs from implementing the new CAFE standards.
- Sets a variety of new energy efficiency equipment standards for everything ranging from residential lighting to commercial appliances.
