ISBN: 978-0-8179-1954-2

James L. Sweeney examines the energy-efficiency policies and practices of the past forty years and their impact on three crucial systems: the economy, the environment, and national security, showing how energy-efficiency contributions to the country’s overall energy situation have been more powerful than any other development. The author reveals how careful nurturing of private- and public-sector energy efficiency--along with public awareness, appropriate pricing, appropriate policies--and increased research and development, the trends of decreasing energy intensity and increasing energy efficiency can be beneficially accelerated.
