The greatest “new” energy source available to use is the reduced demand brought about by greater energy efficiency and conservation. Significant progress has been made in the past and more is expected in the future.

We use about half as much energy today for every dollar of Gross Domestic Product as we did back in 1980. Looking forward, our nation must take energy efficiency more seriously. Our industry is doing its part. Through such technologies as combined heat and power, also known as cogeneration—the re-use of excess heat from refinery processes to produce additional energy—refiners are becoming more efficient, reducing both energy use and emissions.

The oil and natural gas industry has pledged to improve energy efficiency by 10 percent at refineries between 2002 and 2012, and we are making progress in meeting that goal. In fact, in 2006 alone, U.S. refiners saved the energy equivalent of taking 528,000 cars off the road.

It’s also a daily practice of America’s oil and naturalgas industry.Energy efficiency helps companies manage costs,strengthening their competitiveness and bringing moreaffordable energy products to consumers
.
It helps improve the environmental performance of the industry, including reducing greenhouse gas emissions associated withclimate change. And it increases the energy resourcesAmericans depend on for a high quality of life.It may seem paradoxical that energy efficiency hasbecome a hallmark of America’s biggest energy providers.But refinery managers are as committed to saving energyas snow-belt homeowners. And oil and natural gasproducers monitor their energy consumption as carefullyas Americans at the pump.America is vastly more energy-efficient today than ageneration ago. The U.S. oil and natural gas industryis striving to do its part to build on that progress.
ENERGY EFFICIENCY IS A CORE VALUE.
The Oxford English Dictionary records the firstuse of the word “efficiency” in literature in 1593.The U.S. is becoming more energy efficient, when measuredby how much energy is consumed for every dollar of domesticeconomic production.
