CONSERVATION / EFFICIENCY

05-en-efficiencyFrom highly efficient automobiles to efficient light bulbs to motion-sensing light switches, more efficient devices and reduction in waste can contribute as much toward a sustainable energy future as discovery of new energy sources. Research carried out at the University of Illinois is aimed at both improving efficiency of energy-consuming devices as well as conservation of energy by reducing waste.
