Using less services to use less energy and is often a behavioral change. Examples of energy conservation includes turning the light off, even if light is needed, or by dimming the lights below the lighting lumens needed for the productive use or need for illumination.
Having the energy service you need without additional energy, typically by design. Examples include using natural daylight instead of an electrical light and turning the lights off when you don’t need them.
Gaining more service (or productive use) from the same amount of energy. Examples include providing more lumens of light with the same amount of energy.
Energy that is climate friendly and long term viable (sustainable) from renewable resources, ideally from multiple sources that can support hourly and seasonal variation in energy demand. Examples include small- or large-scale biofuels, geothermal, hydro, solar and wind energy sources
Using less energy for the same service, typically by design. Examples include having a lightbulb that uses less energy to provide the same light service & having sensors and smart switches that turn the light off when you don’t need additional light.
The term multiple benefits aims to capture a reality that is often overlooked: investment in energy efficiency can provide many different benefits to many different stakeholders.
