Energy Efficiency: The Key to Saving Trillions

Energy Efficiency-Wisconsin

Compared with eye-catching renewable power technologies like wind turbines and solar panels, energy efficiency is nearly invisible. But advocates say doing more with less power may be an even more critical weapon in the fight against climate change and offers big economic benefits, too.

Rebound Likely Not as Great as Some Might Think

Previously, Zondits reported on the resurgence of the idea that energy efficiency’s problem is related to the rebound effect, where efficient equipment and efficiency programs might actually result in greater energy usage. Though this argument has been put forth many times, rebound related to energy efficiency is extremely hard to quantify.
