There are many ways in which the government can get involved in making our energy efficient. This involves helping us to learn how to use less energy, and how to use cleaner fuels which are less environmentally damaging. Government can also set targets for us to use energy efficient appliances, building materials and vehicles.
The government can also set conditions for us to improve our energy efficiency. This involves being able to afford the appliances and building materials, living near places which are energy efficient, and doing things which help the environment.
Many people are not sure whether it is possible for them to improve their energy efficiency. So the government can provide information, guidance and help by creating publications and providing information online. It is also possible for the government to set criteria for manufacturers to follow. This will make it easier for them to be sure that their goods are energy efficient, and it will also make it easier for the people who want to buy their goods to know that they are energy efficient.
This should also be possible because many of our buildings, roads and vehicles have regulations about how they must look. The government can insist that factories must use materials which comply with these regulations.
People are also urged to do things which improve our fuel reserves. For example in factories if workers burn waste wood to produce energy they can cut their use of fossil fuels. It is also possible for factories to make use of biomass instead of coal.
This in turn could reduce the use of fossil fuels. This can cut pollution.
There are lots of other ways in which the government can get involved in making our energy efficient. This will be of great benefit to our future. By helping us to improve our energy efficiency we will have less to fear from energy shortages and monopolies.
