Rarely does a situation arise when you see experts in different fields such as economics, politics, military, science and the environment talking about the same thing over and over again. In general, various experts have different points of view most of the time in conflict. So, now that we see that everyone “talks” about the problem of climate change and emissions from greenhouses have become the most controversial issue among different countries, it is a reminder of the seriousness of the challenge facing the survival of life on earth. The most pressing need of the hour is to act instead of speaking.
Energy in its various forms is the basis of modern life. Devices and appliances that work with electricity are the providers of the comforts of this lifestyle. In the same way, automobiles and other means of transport are no longer considered a luxury and are the basic need of this generation. Electricity and cars, although only a century old in the journey of man for thousands of years are omnipresent today. The problem arises when we burn gasoline, diesel or gas in vehicles or in power plants where electricity is generated, carbon dioxide is generated, which is the main culprit of the phenomenon of global warming or climate change.
Energy efficient products are a practical and viable solution to the present dilemma in which we have, on the one hand, the comforts of our current lifestyle and, on the other, the very existence of our future generations. Since energy-efficient cars and energy-efficient devices use energy efficiently, they generate fewer emissions and are our first step in the path of sustainability that can be implemented at this time. Several energy-saving products, such as compact fluorescent lamps, hybrid LED lights, solar water heaters and electric cars are available in the market.
Another critical point is the economic benefits of energy saving products both personally and globally. The most common obstacle to using energy-saving products is that these products have a higher price than products that consume much energy. However, it has been established by studies that energy-saving products save much power in the long term and these savings not only compensate for the initial premium spent on energy-saving products, but they are much more than the cost of the products. For example, you can save a lot on fuel costs by buying an electric car or drastically reducing your electricity bill by replacing all the tungsten lamps in your home with CFL lamps.
It is also necessary to remember that the world’s current reserves of oil, gas and coal are limited and run out one day. Today’s civilisation depends heavily on fossil fuels for energy and cannot continue like this forever. Until we can develop our renewable energy capacity to the extent that they can replace fossil fuels, it is important to conserve as much energy as we can. The importance of energy-saving products in this regard cannot be overemphasised.
