Energy efficiency – arguably the most effective tool for reducing energy use and greenhouse gas emissions

FT 28th Sept 2018 , Shinzo Abe makes a stirring pitch for all of us to save the earth
while we still can, arguing that “no alternative” should be excluded. But
the path to energy efficiency should not only include the marketable new
technologies he highlights.
Considering that more than half of all
electricity is consumed in buildings, and that the nuclear meltdowns in
Fukushima have been followed by aggressive construction of coal power
plants, it is time for Japan to get serious about passive strategies for
energy savings. It is time for Japan’s building codes to demand homes be
insulated and architects and engineers embrace the modest and affordable
approaches to conservation that have been used in most developed countries
for decades.
