We tend to forget about how present energy is in our daily life. If you are reading this it due to electricity also known as energy. Energy is present everywhere and by everywhere I mean literally everywhere even in nature with human trace it present in the lightning striking from the grey clouds on a rainy day. We also have energy in our body electric charges that gets released from our synapses into our axons. The human body generates 100 watts of daily power.
The choices people make about how it is they want to use their energy has a long term impact on the environment. What do I mean? Choosing how you use your energy goes from turning machines off when you’re not using them or when you choose to buy hybrid car instead of sports cars. Hence for those of you who will definitely not give up that sweet monster car rev know that hybrid cars like the Tesla PD100 has the second fastest acceleration 0-100 km/h in the world. You might want to rethink your options. People tend to confuse the meaning of energy efficiency and energy conservation, but since you are reading this you might want to consider yourself of the lucky ones.
Energy efficiency and conservation are different but related. The terms energy efficiency and energy conservation have two distinct meanings; here are the two meanings:
Energy efficiency: is simply using technology that requires less energy but still performs with the same outcomes. Need an example? Using a compact fluorescent light bulb that requires less energy instead of using an incandescent bulb to produce the same amount of light is an example of energy efficiency.
Energy conservation: this about any behavior that results in consuming less energy during the day for example turning lights off when leaving the room or installing movement sensors that regulates light in a room.
