Conserving Energy

Conservation efforts and the nation's economy can both be improved by the continued focus of wasting less energy. The following consumer measures can help:
  1. The increased use of weather-stripping and insulation in homes and businesses;
  2. The replacement of incandescent with fluorescent lighting;
  3. The substitution of more efficient kinds of energy for less efficient: like using heat pumps for heating commercial and residential buildings; heat pumps use electricity to transfer heat rather than produce it, using less energy than electric furnaces and heaters.
  4. The continued research into production and manufacturing techniques that will optimize energy use; such as the exploration of superconductivity and robotics.
