Wasting our watts : article in TIME mag

“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 : www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,1869224,00.html 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.

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

  • 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.
