Energy conservation and energy efficiency
Energy conservation means using less energy. Turning out lights and taking shorter showers are examples of energy conservation.
Energy efficiency means using less energy while getting more service from your appliances and equipment. You can do this in two ways:
- By practicing energy-efficient behaviours like covering pots while cooking and insulating your hot water cylinder.
- By choosing to buy products with the best energy rating, such as compact fluorescent lights (which give the same amount of light for less energy) and energy-efficient showerheads (which give you a comfortable shower while using less water).
