Using energy more efficiently is one of the fastest, most cost-effective ways to save money, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, create jobs, and meet growing energy demand. Cook in a microwave to save energy: A microwave uses about 50% less energy as compared to an oven. Conserve energy, have Pizzas! Home electronics consume energy even when switched off! Approximately, 75% of electricity used to power home electronics is consumed while the products are off.
Like every 5 March since 1998, this day marks the World Energy Efficiency Day. The initiative, which emerged in Austria during the First International Meeting on Energy Efficiency, aims to raise awareness of the need to reduce energy consumption through reasonable and sustainable energy use.
