Along with this Homeselfe infographic, the Alliance to Save Energy reports “doing more with less energy benefits you, your country, and the world. The benefits of energy efficiency are numerous. But the top five reasons that people, companies and governments choose to use energy more efficiently are:

  1. Energy efficiency saves you money.
  2. Energy efficiency improves the economy.
  3. Energy efficiency is good for the environment.
  4. Energy efficiency improves national security.
  5. Energy efficiency enhances quality of life.

Research and development programs like this “…help make our country run better through increased efficiency—better plants, advanced materials and manufacturing processes, products, new homes, ways to improve older homes, and buildings in which to work, shop, and lead our everyday lives.”
