Energy efficiency tip of the day (why you should care about energy efficiency?)
What if we stopped looking at energy efficiency as choice and start looking at it as our future?
Think of all energy alternatives that we have as oil, natural gas and coal we all know that we have to find alternatives as wind and solar but you may be surprised to know that the cheapest energy or power is the one you never used and the power you don’t use don't pollute.
With the current energy challenges that we all facing, we should think of energy efficiency as a hidden source of energy to our countries that we need reveal. Reducing our demand had its cost but it outweighs by the benefits, for example for each dollar invested in energy efficiency at consumer side, three dollars can be saved at the power production side. So it is a simple equation if we shifted our mindset and managed to decreased our demand everyone wins, the business owners Will decrease their operation cost, the governments will direct the saved energy to other places where it is truly need it as community hospitals, schools and new cities.
If we are all commit to become more energy efficient in our homes and industries, it will make a difference in our life's, business, communities or even our planet, because the cheapest and cleanest form of energy is actually efficiency.
Engineers with other stakeholders can play a major role to explore energy efficiency opportunities in their facilities and establish an energy management system to sustain their energy savings. In order to walk the talk I started the daily energy efficiency tip of the day to work as an eye opener for the credible opportunities in industrial sector.
In the next articles I will discuss how chemical engineers can develop their career in energy management field as Energy managers, Energy efficiency engineers, Energy auditors and other related rules.
Many industrial authorities in different places worldwide started promoting energy management programs and systems in their industrial and commercial sectors but still more efforts need to be done everywhere.
If you believe that you want to play a role to serve your industry and community please provide your opinions about how we can promote energy efficiency mindset in our industries?
