Intelligent, energy-saving products and solutions can produce tremendous savings – in terms of power and costs – in buildings, industry and transportation. Households can also become more efficient. Modern, smart home appliances use less than half as much energy as their predecessors from the 1990s.
Measured among the 23 biggest energy-using countries, Australia scores reasonably well for energy efficiency in buildings. Strong, mandatory energy codes have been in place here since the turn of the century. When it comes to transportation, the country’s largest single energy consumer, Australia comes second from bottom. In industry, too, there is still massive room for improvement.
