Energy efficiency is an important factor in an economy, since it helps meet energy needs, decrease costs, and lower environmental impacts. A review of the evolution of energy intensity in European and Former Soviet Union countries indicates a positive trend: high-energy-intensity countries have now reached the level of medium-energy-intensity economies 15 years earlier, and in the same period, medium-energy-intensity ones had similarly evolved to levels of low-energy-intensity. At the same time, the fast transitioning economies of Central Europe converged towards similar levels of energy intensities, in line with EU Directives, while successful EU-15 countries managed to maintain economic growth while keeping energy use flat. This report looks at how countries effect the transition from high- to medium- to low-energy-intensity, exploring whether leapfrogging is possible (it’s not) and what policies can be particularly helpful. Some of the lessons include: energy prices tend to evolve from subsidized levels to full-cost-recovery to full-cost-recovery-plus environmental externalities; industrial energy efficiency is often the starting point, with privatization and competition driving companies to reduce production costs, including energy; successful countries excell at governance (setting targets, building institutional capacity, creating and improving the legal and regulatory framework, and monitoring and evaluating); households tended to be the last, and most difficult, area of reform, starting with pricing improvements, outreach campaigns, financing programs, and building certificates programs.
This book takes on a central quandary in the study of energy and environmental policy: What myths continue to exist in American culture concerning energy, the environment, and society? It enrolls twenty-four of the nation’s top experts working on energy policy to debunk and contextualize thirteen energy myths relating to electric power, renewable energy, energy efficiency, transportation, and climate change. The book will appeal to an international audience.
If you're installing windows, doors or skylights and you're not using GREAT STUFF Window & Door foam sealant, you're probably unaware of a faster, cheaper air-sealing solution. It is a minimal-expanding foam with a low pressure build that forms a durable, airtight and water-resistant seal between a window or door frame and its rough opening without bowing or bending the window frames. It's the original window and door draft stopper.

Saving energy is saving money, there is something special about watching your bills go down month to month from improvements you have made to your home or building.This book consists of extensive research on my part in my own journey to lower my electric, and to a very mild extent propane, and natural gas usage. All of my findings are in this book and can drastically lower your bills from month to month. The items in this book should put you on the fast track to saving energy, and money. It covers many of the newest technologies and explains how they will work for you.When you complete this book you will have the information you need to make a road map for your own energy savings, this information can be used simply to lower your bill, or as extensive as buying alternative energy such as solar at a lower price due to less energy required, or saving the environment if that is what you're looking for.You may be surprised at what exactly uses power in your home, and what uses next to nothing at all! One way in particular can save over 200 Kwh per month on your electric, and pays for itself very quickly, sometimes instantly depending on where you live!

Energy: What the World Needs Now is an optimistic, yet realistic approach to energy issues in the United States and throughout the world. The audience is non-science college students, advanced high school students, and general readers. In addition to chemistry and physical science courses, this book could be a supplemental textbook for courses on sustainability, global politics of energy, economics of energy, psychology of sustainability, how to be green, etc.Topics covered include: energy basics, power plant operation, fossil fuels, nuclear energy, renewable energy (hydroelectric, wind, solar, biofuels, and geothermal), efficiency and conservation, batteries and fuel cells, the cost of energy, global energy use, and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, global warming, and climate change. A chemistry primer explains how the combustion of a fuel produces energy. A chapter is devoted to developing an intuitive sense of energy using the caloric content of a Snickers bar as a unit and then scaling up to global energy use.Energy: What the World Needs Now not only gives the reader a good qualitative sense of energy issues but it also equips the reader to evaluate energy issues quantitatively. There are many calculations in this book, but they are no more difficult than the average consumer math calculation. Anyone interested in finding a sale or buying in bulk can do the calculations found here.Energy and environmental issues are extremely politicized in the United States. We do not think it has to be this way. All agree that we need and want energy. Our modern technological society demands it. Most agree that we want these things in a safe and sustainable way. Energy: What the World Needs Now is no policy manual, but it seeks to inform the general public about the need, the cost, the timeline, and the risks of the energy choices we will be making.Energy: What the World Needs Now was originally published for the Apple iPad and included embedded movies, photo galleries, rotatable 3D images, review questions, and an interactive glossary. There were also three specialty calculators built with the HTML5 widget: a reaction energy calculator, a global energy use and population calculator, and an energy use calculator to predict future energy use as renewable energy sources are developed. Some of these interactive resources are now available at the book web site at http://www.energywhattheworldneedsnow.com

This title includes a number of Open Access chapters. The world's interest in reducing petroleum use has led to the rapid development of the biofuel industry over the past decade or so. However, there is increasing concern over how current food-based biofuels affect both food security and the environment. Second-generation biofuels, however, use widely available sources such as non-food lignocellulosic-based biomass and fats, oils, and greases. They make practical consideration of how land use can simultaneously support both the world's food needs and some of its energy needs. This volume consolidates some of the most recent investigations into these issues. The chapters focus on these categories of research: The problems currently connected with biofuels relating to land use and the environment Investigations into the potential for land use to be managed more effectively and sustainably Research that focuses on new and developing options for second-generation biofuels This volume is recommended for all biofuel researchers, from the PhD student to the experienced scientist. It also offers an essential foundation to anyone interested in how biofuels relate to the future of our world.
