Energy Efficiency: Building a Clean, Secure Economy by James Sweeney

By James Sweeney

the total international, specifically the us, is in the course of an power revolution. because the oil embargo of 1973, contributors, enterprises, and different firms have chanced on how one can economically decrease power use. during this publication, Jim Sweeney examines the strength regulations and practices of the earlier 40 years and their impression on 3 an important structures: the financial system, the surroundings, and nationwide defense. He indicates how energy-efficiency contributions to the country's total strength state of affairs were extra strong than the entire raises within the household creation of oil, gasoline, coal, geothermal strength, nuclear strength, solar energy, wind strength, and biofuels. the writer info the effect of recent and stronger energy-efficient applied sciences, the environmental and nationwide safety merits of strength potency, how you can enlarge power potency, and extra. power potency: construction a fresh, safe economic system unearths how the cautious nurturing of personal- and public-sector power efficiency--along with public know-how, acceptable pricing, acceptable policies--and elevated examine and improvement, the traits of lowering strength depth and lengthening power potency may be beneficially accelerated.
