A more liberal disposition on energy management solutions is a consequence of growing statistics in energy consumption. Everyday comforts afforded by scientific developments such as lighting, warmth during winter, cooling during summer, water heating, electronic entertainment, refrigeration and cooking, all require considerable energy use. In the United States buildings alone, for example, the total utility bill for energy used in 2005 was three hundred sixty-nine billion dollars ($369B).
Energy management solutions not only seek to reduce carbon footprint, but also guarantee monetary savings. Consequently, policymakers, business owners, as well as homeowners across the continent are now looking into ways to save energy. There have been towns and cities that have taken a stand on the importance of efficient energy use and have incorporated the practice in several policies and programs, while companies have implemented energy management solutions such as the installation of energy-efficient fixtures in building premises without negatively affecting customers, employees, or their products and services. This advocacy has even become a very popular topic of discussion in the different media of communication, including the worldwide web.
With the current recession felt across the United States and when recovery is a seemingly long way to go, local communities and businesses, apart from government initiatives, would do well to incorporate energy management solutions in daily dealings. From the simplest task of replacing traditional incandescent bulbs with low-energy fluorescents to turning off unused appliances, energy consumption can dramatically drop; thus, human carbon footprint is reduced.
