Inadequate governmental energy conservation policies
Nature: Energy conservation can be defined as the strategy for reducing energy requirements per unit of industrial output or individual well-being without affecting the progress of socio-economic development or causing disruption in life style (Schipper, 1976).
Claim: Most goods could and should be both manufactured and made to work more efficiently. Policies should be designed to encourage efficient use of energy. These would probably have to incorporate a variety of energy-savings measures, including fiscal measures, regulations and standards, encouragement of action by common means (public transportation, total energy systems), public education and research and development.
