Future of energy: Efficiency


Future of energy: Efficiency
This story is part of a series on Stanford collaborations helping to create the Future of Energy.
By Amy Adams

In the past few decades, improvements in energy efficiency in our homes, buildings and cars have significantly reduced carbon emissions by cutting demand. In addition to the environmental impacts, this enhanced efficiency has improved national security, reducing energy imports four times as much as the combined increases in domestic production of all energy sources combined.

Continuing that trend of increasing efficiency has been the focus of the Precourt Energy Efficiency Center (PEEC), which emphasizes efficiency in buildings and homes like more efficient heating, cooling and lighting as well as transportation, green computing and how people make energy decisions in their daily lives.

1. Transmission losses

I'd suggest the largest place to increase energy efficiency will be on the transmission side.
