We Need to Focus on Reducing Our Global Demand for Energy

Global Demand for Energy
Capturing waste heat for reuse in homes and industry.

Global Demand for Energy ( Solar Thermal Magazine) – Whether we are talking about industry or residential the market for energy efficiency in the area of heating and ventilation is growing by leaps and bounds. Systems installed 8 to 10 years ago are already far to inefficient to ignore the latest technology.

It is far better to reduce our demand for energy around the world before we build any type of power plant whether it is nuclear or solar thermal. We need to keep our demand under control.

It is better to reduce our demand than build a new power plant.

It is better to reduce our demand than build a new power plant.

This air to water heat exchanger takes the energy from hot air and gives to a water system allowing you to us it capture waste heat or fireplace flue gas and many other heat opportunities. We need to expand our use of such energy efficiency technologies and we need to do it quickly as our population growth and growing appetite for energy out strips our installed capacity.
