Has Green Energy Efficiency become an American Value?

Updated: Nov 16

Reports are showing that Americans are buying Energy Monitors, smart energy efficient devices and accessories, and it also shows that many of them are transforming their household into smart energy efficient or solar powered houses. Over the past decade Green Energy and Energy efficiency has become an American value. Many Americans embraced that value and every day we see a growing number of US households being transformed , some completely and others, little by little... American consumers are becoming more and more conscious of the necessity to become pro-active into consuming energy wisely and efficiently, they also enjoy the features and applications their new smart devices offers. Green energy is not only beneficial to preserve the energy natural sources but it also translates into significant savings.

Technology keeps expanding; it changes and brings important improvement into our lives and households. For the last decade numerous researchers, statisticians’ and scientists studying the current trade into the growing interest of homeowners and even renters into reducing their home energy consumption and therefore into saving money. For many consumers saving money is one of the main arguments for buying Energy Monitors and smart home solutions. Added to the fact that Energy efficiency is good for the economy in general, it is good for families allowing a better control on cost, security and control on usage; it is as good for workers in the workplaces insuring comfort, security and production, and definitely good for the environment.

Many of the researches results were published in different publications, such as the “Energy Efficiency Impact Report, and the “American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy” (ACEEE), as well as the “Alliance to Save Energy”, and finally the “Business Council for Sustainable Energy”.

Following are a few points that were reported in different researches;

  • Over 2.3 million energy efficiency jobs were created in the U.S., which make up 40% of all energy jobs with 70% of the workers employed by small businesses.

  • In 2017 a report showed that, air pollution was largely avoided thanks to energy efficiency monitoring which was responsible for $540 million in public health benefits, including avoided non-fatal heart attacks and asthma exacerbation's.

  • By improving Appliances, equipment and their standards this have helped deliver up to 80% in energy savings since 1980”, by improving the size, their capacity, and mostly their performance.

  • The Global investment in digital infrastructure and software for electricity systems has increased by more than 20% annually from 2014 to 2016. After reaching a plateau for a little while, recent studies show that the trend to increase has started moving up again.

The researches and reports covered energy efficiency in buildings (public and private), in transportation (commercial and personal), in the industry, and on the co-benefits to energy saving; as well as the energy efficiency scene in utilities, states, cities, around the United States and in countries around the world.

Those reports include and show figures energy use data and trend in the US, it also includes the percentage of households with high energy burdens; U.S. energy productivity over time; the emissions reductions from energy savings over time; and per capita energy consumption data from 1980 until 2018.” Source: Posted by Jim Gunshinan on January 07, 2020

Green energy, Energy Monitors and energy monitoring is about products, devices and services for the control and reduction of energy consumption. For decades “Energy Efficiency” has grown into becoming an American Value adopted by numerous homeowners and even renters, the “value” is widely adopted around the world. While the first smart homes were high-value mansions, new plug-and-play solutions drive prices down and eventually opened the market for middle class households. While smart homes now focus on preserving energy, we can also expect a shift towards energy storage and production in a near future. Source: Statista – Energy Management & Energy
