Energy Conservation
 

Energy Conservation

Energy conservation is the practice of decreasing the quantity of energy used.  It may be achieved through efficient energy use, in which case energy use is decreased while achieving a similar outcome, or by reduced consumption of energy services.
Energy conservation reduces the energy consumption and energy demand per capita and thus offsets some of the growth in energy supply needed to keep up with population growth.  This reduces the rise in energy costs, and can reduce the need for new power plants, and energy imports.
By reducing emissions, energy conservation is an important part of lessening climate change.  Energy conservation facilitates the replacement of non-renewable resources with renewable energy.  Energy conservation is often the most economical solution to energy shortages, and is a more environmentally benign alternative to increased energy production.
 

EFFICIENT ENERGY USE

Efficient energy use is using less energy to provide the same level of energy service. For example, insulating a home allows a building to use less heating and cooling energy to achieve the same temperature. Another example would be installing fluorescent lights and/or skylights instead of incandescent lights to attain the same level of illumination. A 13 watt fluorescent light bulb outputs the same amount of visible light as a 60 watt incandescent bulb, so you are getting more light for less energy. Efficient energy use is achieved primarily by means of a more efficient technology or process rather than by changes in individual behavior.
