Here's a very useful infographic on energy efficient solutions such as energy saving devices and better energy choices. This guest post comes from eLocal.
Some of the facts presented are most relevant for our US readers but I'm sure everyone will find something useful here for reducing CO2 and becoming more energy efficient.
Here in Europe incandescent bulbs are already gone, thanks to tough EU regulations - but that is only one part of the problem. Every country and economic market needs to consider its energy usage and become far more efficient. Everyone everywhere needs to find ways to reduce energy use as well as switching to more sustainable energy sources as quickly as possible.
There is a host of new demands for energy through new industries and new consumer products and many traditional sources of energy (coal, gas and oil) generate a lot of pollution in particular carbon dioxide and nitrogen gases.
New energy saving solutions are needed more than ever.
Here's a short introduction from eLocal, followed by the infographic.
"While there are endless reasons why we should take energy efficiency seriously, it is first important to understand that we are relying heavily on resources that are dwindling. We almost completely rely on oil, coal and natural gas. There are laws in place to keep energy efficiency in mind but it’s not enough.
There are several things you can do at home to conserve energy. Of course, the most vital energy efficient choice you can make is to invest in energy-efficient appliances. To see a glimpse of the impact we could make on the environment, if every household in the U.S. replaced one incandescent bulb with a CFL, we would have enough energy to light 3 million homes for a year. Check out this infographic to learn more about energy efficiency."
