SAVING ENERGY

Under the name of saving energy are different techniques to reduce energy consumption necessary for the performance of various human activities.

The savings can be achieved either by changing the process so there is less waste and using technology to transform energy from one form to another more efficiently.

One of the most common examples is the replacement of incandescent bulbs with fluorescent ones, which emit light energy at different times the same amount of energy consumed first.

Even in the heating systems of buildings are more or less simple measures to save energy, such as ‘use of thermostatic valves, the’ use of thermostats and other more challenging, as the replacement of old fixtures, old boilers with condensing boilers , the wall insulation.

Energy savings you can have on the production of electricity using cogeneration systems to improve yields of the various processes, which consist of technologies to obtain, simultaneously, for example, electricity and heat, or are used in “cascade “the same energy flows to increasing entropy, for a variety or, finally, to carry out forms of energy recovery apparatus. Or using the energy dispersed by the movement of humans or cars, as has already been done in Holland, for example, pressure-sensitive floors that produce electricity, the subway stairs in places most frequented in the world. The effects of these policies must always be considered in relation to the Jevons Paradox.
