Energy Efficiency - myth or reality?
IEN was invited to give a talk about energy efficiency. Is it a myth - or a reality? Of course, it's a reality! In fact, the more than 40% of the reduction in greenhouse gas emissions will come from energy efficiency over next twenty years, according to the International Energy Agency (IEA).
During the presentation, 3 polls were conducted to engage the participants. The presentation and the poll results can be viewed and downloaded here:
The presentation has several case studies of:
Highly energy efficient building projects with 2/3 energy savings (excluding contribution from solar panels)
Highly energy efficient office lighting systems designed successfully for glare-free daylighting, reducing measured lighting consumption by a factor 25
Highly efficient split air-conditioners with a COP higher than 10 (prototypes developed under the Global Cooling Prize and becoming commercially available in a couple of years)
Highly efficient mechanisms to make the energy efficiency the natural choice.
No wonder the IEA calls energy efficiency the "first fuel".
