Dr. John Ryan introduces his book “Reducing Energy Consumption"

Dr. John Ryan introduces his book “Reducing Energy Consumption" | Sustainable Energy | Scoop.it
Organisations face a number of questions when they are considering their energy efficiency such as why is your company’s electricity bill high? Have you established your company’s energy priorities, and have you considered how the weather conditions can impact on your company’s energy consumption? Are photovoltaic, wind, or biomasses viable solutions to consider for an organisation which wants to put in place an innovative programme of energy efficiency? Have you engaged your staff to support the company’s energy consumption? To these and more questions John Ryan’s book gives coherent, timely answers.

Energy Conservation and the 1970s Oil Crisis

Energy Conservation and the 1970s Oil Crisis | Sustainable Energy | Scoop.it
“Past conservation efforts have been far more successful than many people appreciate. That’s because they have been so comfortable that people didn’t notice. Rosenfeld points out that it was conservation that liberated us from the control of the oil cartel in the 1970s. When the oil embargo began, the 4% yearly improvement in conservation in the United States allowed our economy to grow with no increase in energy use. But the members of OPEC, the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, suffered from their reduced income brought about by the embargo. OPEC was more addicted to US dollars than the United States was to foreign oil. A little bit of extra conservation on our part drove down their income and forced them to increase production. That is a very important point for future presidents to know. OPEC was defeated by US conservation efforts, largely during a period when the general public was unaware that conservation progress was taking place.”
