Energy conservation is a methodology that utilises less expendable resources, and makes use of more renewable forms of energy. It reduces carbon emissions and footprints, therefore reducing environmental impact.
Fossil fuels are a non-renewable energy source that needs to be avoided in order to mitigate climate change, pollution, and move towards a path of sustainability. This is mainly because fossil fuel consumption releases greenhouse gases and pollutes the environment. It is the major reason for the air pollution crisis that plagues our modern age.
Switching to renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, hydro and geothermal is a much better alternative for our planet. Nowadays, in the commercial space, energy efficient appliances are ever-present. Energy efficient appliances include refrigerators, fans, LED lightings, air conditioners etc. that have energy ratings according to their energy efficiency.
Use of green technologies such as wind power, geothermal power, solar energy generation, hydroelectric power, wastewater treatment, carbon capture, etc. are a way to reduce carbon footprints as a whole. Innovative measures can be taken to reduce energy consumption, one of them being natural lighting. Natural lighting is nothing but using sunlight as means for lighting purposes.
Through the Earth5R app, you will conduct an energy conservation study, where they visit stores to check for natural lighting facilities. Natural lighting is the use of sunlight as a light source in place of electricity. Using natural lighting reduces energy consumption.
Earth5R will not only share your valuable survey readings within your community, but also inform your local government, and push for change. Thus, you will directly impact the noise pollution in your locality, and improve the well-being of your community.
