Congress. Senate. Committee on Governmental Affairs.]. 4 The Role of Energy Efficiency in Increasingly Clean Electricity. While the rest of this report examines the prospects for increasing the supply of electricity from increasingly clean sources, this chapter deals with economically efficient methods of reducing electricity usage through energy efficiency.

1 Energy-efficiency measures offer the promise of reducing energy use and saving money on. Energy conservation is the effort made to reduce the consumption of energy by using less of an energy service. This can be achieved either by using energy more efficiently (using less energy for a constant service) or by reducing the amount of service used (for example, by driving less).

Energy conservation is a part of the concept of Eco-sufficiency. Energy Efficiency Resources to Support State Energy Planning – State and local governments across the United States are focused on meeting a variety of energy, economic development, and environmental goals. Energy efficiency improvements can meet these needs while cost-effectively saving consumers and businesses nearlygigawatt hours.
