The country has much to gain by being smarter with the energy we already produce. The suite of technologies and practices commonly referred to as "energy efficiency" is defined as the products, systems, building practices and materials, and other technologies that result in delivery of the same energy services using less energy than their conventional counterparts. Energy efficiency would save Americans money and would result in reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. Efficiency is also critical to protecting wild lands.
