The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency defines efficiency as "...actions to save fuels by better building design, the modification of production processes, better selection of road vehicles and transport policies, the adoption of district heating schemes in conjunction with electrical power generation, and the use of domestic insulation and double glazing in homes". Everyone from individual consumers, to business people and governmental officials can make simple changes that allow more work to be done with less energy inputs, creating a huge impact on the bottom line and the environment.
