What is Energy Efficiency?
People often think an energy efficiency in architecture involves numerous solar panels or other renewables on an inefficient building. Or making sure you have a minimal power bill by turning off all the heating and putting on another jersey.....
This isn't energy efficiency.
A better definition of energy efficiency is:
- GETTING BETTER PERFORMANCE WITH THE SAME ENERGY
- GETTING THE SAME PERFORMANCE WITH LESS ENERGY
- Or the ultimate: GETTING BETTER PERFORMANCE WITH LESS ENERGY
Energy Efficiency also means achieving the Triple Bottom Line:
- Its better for you
- Better for your bills
- Better for the Environment.
