Wasting our watts : article in TIME mag

April 9th, 2009 | Posted in Energy Efficiency - news

“Wasting our watts. We don’t need new drilling or new power plants. We need to get efficient”

I advise you to read this paper about America’s Untapped Energy Resource: Boosting Efficiency 

“A lot of simple answers are just sitting around waiting for us to execute”. Tom Reddoch, Electric Power Research Institute – EPRI.

 This article is giving a good overview of the American situation: the stake is to get “the miracle juice” of what is called “energy efficiency” …. Two basic ways for that: using more efficient machinery & using machinery more efficiently.

  1. Energy efficiency is important, but efficiency won’t solve our growing energy needs. Nuclear power plants will.

  2. saving watts cannot be achieved by campaign or propaganda but only by legislation penalising over consumption.For each category of building(home,shop,office etc)maximum kwh/m2 should be defined first.

  3. Hi my family member! I wish to say that this article
