What is Energy Efficiency?
Energy efficiency is “using less energy to provide the same service”. There are other definitions, but we think this is a good operational one.
When you replace an appliance, such as a machine, air conditioning unit or office equipment, such as a computer or printer, with a more energy-efficient model, the new equipment provides the same service but uses less energy. This saves you money on your energy bill, and reduces the amount of greenhouse gases going into the atmosphere.
Energy efficiency is a method of sustainability and future proofing
Anywhere energy is used; there are opportunities to increase efficiency. In most cases, energy efficiency measures will pay for themselves over time in the form of reducing energy bills.
How quickly they pay back their investment depends on a number of factors, including energy price, and the appliance usage—for example, how many hours it’s used. Weather is a factor when the measure is related to environmental conditioning of a space such as in heating and cooling appliances.
Financial analysis of the cost of various energy efficiency measures, versus most kinds of energy generation demonstrates that the energy efficiency measures are almost always cheaper.Request A Callback
