Difference Between Energy Conservation and Energy Efficiency
Energy conservation is reducing a service or consumption in order to save energy.
Energy efficiency is using less energy to perform the same function.
- Turning off lights when leaving the room
- Lowering thermostat in winter, raising thermostat in summer
- Driving a motor vehicle for less distance (shorter route, carpool, use public transportation)
Energy Efficiency Examples
- Using LED or compact fluorescent light bulbs instead of incandescent bulbs
- Using an energy-efficient heating/cooling system
- Repairing leaking ducts and pipes
- Adding insulation
- Avoid unnecessary engine idling, make sure tires are properly inflated
- Fuel consumption of a mid-size car increases by about 1% for every 25 kilograms (55 lbs) of weight in the vehicle
