Saving Energy through Resource Efficiency
»» Resource efficiency has similar overall potential to save energy as industrial energy efficiency approaches.
»» There is a huge range of opportunities to improve resource efficiency.
»» The energy saving scopes of resource efficiency and energy efficiency complement each other.
»» Firstly “getting more out” of products, and then “putting less in” to them, maximises value capture and energy savings.
»» Significant additional potential energy savings are outside the scope of energy efficiency or traditional resource efficiency approaches.
