Energy

Energy - vital to life

Energy and the management of energy is vital to support all activities on earth. As the discussion rages about climate change and the effects of global warming and man's contribution, so the management of energy becomes ever more important.

This includes how we source energy in a low-carbon way, how we use energy efficiently and how we manage by-products of energy consumption.

We consume energy in so many ways:

  • Lighting 
  • Heating (cold climates)
  • Cooling/AC (warm climates)
  • Transport
  • Industry
  • Refrigeration & freezing
  • Cooking
  • Heating water 
  • Media devices
  • Pumping

And in every case there is a challenge to develop the energy source that reduces the cost and the carbon impact. Once those energy sources are adopted the challenge is then to reduce the consumption by using the energy source more efficiently.
