Electric appliances and appliances electricity usage

By Andy SchaferPublished October 15, 2017 12:58:08In the wake of the Fukushima disaster, the US is stepping up efforts to limit the use of household electric appliances and electrical appliances in public places.

The US Department of Energy’s Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability, a government agency tasked with helping businesses and the public transition away from fossil fuels, is asking utility companies to consider using less energy from their energy supply.

The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (OEER) is also seeking utilities to adopt a more efficient energy efficiency strategy, which could save them millions of dollars over the next decade, according to an official notice posted on the DOE website.OER has been working with utilities to establish standards for energy efficiency that could help them save money and reduce their carbon footprint, which it says can account for as much as 2% of their overall energy use.

It’s the latest in a series of government efforts aimed at reducing carbon emissions and helping consumers save money on their electricity bills.

OER’s latest proposal calls for energy consumption to be cut by up to 9%, from 7.6 billion gallons (22 billion liters) of gasoline to 4.6bn gallons (11.8 billion litrs).

This would result in the savings of $2.8 trillion, or $4,000 per person, per year, OER says.

The Office of Electric Reliability and Efficiency has also set up a “green energy transition plan” to help utilities meet the demand for electricity by 2025.

Energy efficiency could also help the US avoid costly blackouts during the Super Bowl and other sporting events, which would help businesses and consumers in the long term.OES is also exploring the possibility of offering incentives for utilities to make energy efficiency improvements.

The government agency is looking into ways to incentivize energy efficiency upgrades in public buildings, and the Office of Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety has been investigating ways to provide incentives to reduce air pollution in public workplaces.
