Energy efficiency is a good way to save money

Power generation is one of the biggest source of greenhouse gases in the U.S., accounting for 28 percent of total CO2 emissions. The idea to reduce the use of fossil fuels, in favor of renewables, has therefore gained worldwide acceptance and attention. However, there is another way to reduce greenhouse gases, and that is to improve and regulate the demand and usage of energy…

Energy efficiency has been called the “first fuel” because all countries can adopt energy-saving technologies that cut wastage, improve efficiency and that “generate” excess power. Prime examples of measures that make a difference include the adoption of Light Emitting Diodes (LED) lights which are much more energy efficient than traditional incandescent bulbs or replacement of old inefficient central heating boilers with modern fuel-efficient ones. The efficient use of energy in everyday activities, the IEA estimates, saved some 450 million metric tons of oil equivalent in 2015. These efficiency savings also cut world energy spending by at least $500 billion in the same year.
