    Leading Role of Energy Conservation

  • “The EU has set ambitious, even imposing, goals to combat climate change. The centrepiece of the 2030 framework -- a 40% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions below 1990 levels -- is no small feat. This new emissions target has left some countries reeling and collectively asking: how can we possibly meet these targets?One option is energy efficiency: getting more out of the energy we use and cutting the amount of energy we waste. When efficiency programmes were introduced in the 1970s, they were mainly structural programmes that encouraged consumers to purchase more efficient appliances and to insulate their homes. But there’s arguably more efficiency potential in behaviour--by taking simple steps such as turning down the thermostat and turning off lights, people can deliver significant energy savings.   ”

  • “The problem of energy waste should be viewed in terms of behavior and habit entirely avoidable - such as leaving lights switched on unnecessarily and equipment - which added up over a long period of time lead to significant additional costs and emissions consistent. Opower , the U.S. leader in the field of energy savings, since 2007 has succeeded where decades of awareness campaigns and incentives have obtained insignificant results. How? Simply informing people what was in the bills of the energy consumption of their home compared with the average for the district.
