Energy efficiency becomes third most important electricity source
Energy efficiency measures have helped the US drive down the demand for electricity, effectively becoming the third equivalent source of electricity for the country, a recent report has found.
The American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ACEEE) revealed that, without energy efficiency measures, 313 additional large power plants would had been necessary to meet the country’s electricity needs.
Investments in energy efficiency have paid off, reducing pollution, advancing cutting-edge technology, creating jobs and also helping households save on average £840 annually, its report added.
The organisation believes that if the country increases its use of energy efficiency policies, it could become the nation’s largest electricity resource by 2030, providing one-third of total expected electricity generation needs.
These additional energy savings by 2030 would avoid the need for electrical capacity equivalent to 487 power plants.
