Since the forums are largely technology oriented, do you think it would be better to integrate that aspect as well. We all know about wastefulness but not about all of the ways that technology can be used to assist and fine tune the process. We'd need to, in my thinking, separate $$$ savings from energy savings. They are not the same thing and we find that out every day. Currently in many ways it's less costly in dollars (in the short term) to be wasteful. An interesting debate could easily come from advertised versus true savings in both $$$ and energy use. One of my favorite sayings has been something to the effect that "in order to get something clean, something else must get dirty". It's what gets dirty that we omit touting the advantages of an idea or plan.
To the Powers that be?
Could you initiate and set up an Energy Savings Forum!?
The idea is to delve into new areas of energy savings.
May be in the area of alternative heat pumps, solar hot water heat or solar electric grids, wind turbines, etc. that will initiate a payback program from our energy grids.
Could be an interesting Forum here at CNET.
My original post, concerning the Acadia Heat Pump has generated lots of links for over a year.
A new Forum was suggested to me by James Dennison. I think that it could work here at CNET and would have some interest.
I am sure there would be commercial interests here as well on CNET with the pop-up ads.
How much coal is available in the US v/s Oil?
Why are the US Military and our commercial Airline industry switching to a new universal jet fuel utilizing coal technology presently??
A new Energy Savings Forum is worth considering.
Ask James Dennison to be the Mod. at the Energy Savings Forum. James would be good here on CNET.
A very savvy guy!
There are a lot of interests to save energy today.
Here are some links to look at and consider as an example of interests.
Pay particular attention to the side ads and who are advertising on those sites:
