Roadmap details how to cut AK energy use by 50% by 2025
February 25, 2010
Could we reduce our energy use by 50 percent over 2000 levels and, at the same time, generate jobs and boost economic output? This Alaska Conservation Alliance report details how Alaskans can do it by 2025. It’s an ambitious plan, but as many have noted the cheapest energy to buy is the energy not purchased at all, or as some call it, “the negawatt”. The report, entittled “Railbelt Electricity Efficiency Landscape” (REEL) was unveiled in Juneau Tuesday and attracted quite a bit of media coverage, which I’ve linked to below.
