White paper on Energy Efficiency - 3Making permanent savings through Active Energy Efficiency
Executive Summary
This white paper argues strongly that meeting greenhouse gas emissionstargets set within the Kyoto Protocol will fail unless Active Energy Efficiencybecomes compulsory.Active Energy Efficiency is defined as effecting permanent change throughmeasurement, monitoring, and control of energy usage. Passive EnergyEfficiency is regarded as the installation of countermeasures againstthermal losses, the use of low consumption equipment, and so forth.It is vital, but insufficient, to make use of energy-saving equipment anddevices such as low-energy lighting. Without proper control, these measuresoften merely militate against energy losses rather than make a real reductionin energy consumed and in the way it is used.Everything that consumes power – from direct electricity consumptionthrough lighting, heating, and, most significantly, electric motors, but alsoin HVAC control, boiler control, and so forth – must be addressed activelyif sustained gains are to be made. This includes changing the culture andmindsets of groups of individuals, resulting in behavioural shifts at work andat home, but clearly this need is reduced by greater use of technical controls.
