With all due respect to the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy and the Alliance to Save Energy  ;D, energy savings lack an amplifier powerful enough to make their important signals audible over the supply-side hype, so efficiency continues to be underestimated or ignored.

This omission makes governments and firms misallocate even more financial, physical, and political capital to costlier, slower, and less effective supply expansions.

Reduced energy intensity could have fueled about three times as much recent global economic growth as increased supply, but the supply industries  :evil4: own more like 99 percent of the message.  ;)

Energy Efficiency: The Secret Revolution

SNIPPET:

Increased efficiency matters: lower consumption due to 1974–2010 drops in energy intensity was the largest single energy resource across the 11 IEA member countries’ aggregate total final consumption — bigger than either oil or the combined contributions of gas, electricity, and coal.

Had those 11 countries produced their 2010 GDP at their 1974 delivered energy intensities, they’d have used 65 percent more energy than they did. Reduced intensity has fueled half the world’s growth in energy services since 1970 — as much as all supply expansions. Who knew? 


Agelbert NOTE: The Fossil Fuel Industry BEAN COUNTERS KNEW and are threatened by that knowledge! 

And THAT is why the fossil fuel prevaricating and mendacious bullshit artists (Hi S3 Mking!   ;D) harp on the "math" of SUPPLY AND DEMAND. 

Te conozco bacalao / aunque venga disfrazado
Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
