How to get energy to save the world
Consumers are using more energy than ever before, but they’re still not using enough.
That’s according to a new report that examines how consumers are consuming energy and how that compares to the amount of electricity they use.
The new report, published by the nonprofit Consumers Energy Information Center, says that about 10 percent of all energy consumed in the United States is used by households.
The data is based on a survey of over 10,000 households in California and Washington, D.C. In total, nearly 1.7 billion gallons of energy were used in the survey.
The survey shows that nearly a quarter of Americans use at least 100% of their household’s energy needs, but the data doesn’t show how much energy is actually used.
“The report is an important reminder that energy consumption is not necessarily increasing, and the real energy consumption growth is occurring outside of energy use,” said Jennifer Cogdell, a spokeswoman for Consumers Energy.
This is one of many reports on energy that have been released in recent years, highlighting the energy impacts of climate change and climate disruption.
According to a recent report by the Energy Information Administration, the United Kingdom is the world’s biggest energy consumer, consuming nearly 14% of the country’s electricity, which is the highest share of any nation.
The U.S. consumes less than 0.6% of its energy from renewables, according to the report.
