Key Concepts Used In Domestic Energy Policy

The energy source is the direct delivery of converted fuels to the desired point of use. It potentially encompasses the generation, transmission, production, distribution, and even storage of energy. It is often referred to as ‘energy flow.’

Energy management refers

to the interaction between energy supply and climate. It is a huge inter-relationship that determines how we can utilize energy better to minimize the impact on the environment and preserve our resources. It also contributes to economic development by ensuring the efficient use of various energy sources for the benefit of the economy in the long run. There are three different ways we can determine the status of our energy supply: fossil fuels, hydroelectricity, and wind. These energy sources are considered to be the major drivers of climate change. The alarming rates of global warming caused by greenhouse gas emissions are strong evidence of the need for energy management strategies.

Energy consumed by households

companies and governments around the world are measured in wattage. An average household uses about 2021 watts of electricity per day. The energy consumed by industry, government, and organizations call ‘hard energy’, and the energy consumed by fossil fuel companies and hydroelectric power plants is considered soft energy’. With all these sources, we cannot deny the fact that the decline in fossil fuels and the increase in the level of hydroelectric dams worldwide are having serious consequences on our energy supply.

Energy management involves many key concepts

such as demand response, efficiency management, environmental impact, conservation, resilience, energy economics, financial markets, technology, international collaboration, and globalization. Demand response refers to the regulation of prices and availability of different sources of energy to ensure that the highest available resource is made available to the market at the lowest cost. Efficiency management seeks to improve the efficiency of various forms of energy production and consumption so that power can be produced at the lowest possible cost while increasing the share of green renewable sources in the overall energy mix. Green renewable sources include wind, solar, geothermal, and biogas.

Conservation of energy supplies refers

to the ability of a system to conserve energy and avoid waste or excessive consumption of a source of energy. Economic competitiveness refers to the extent to which a society can realize its energy-saving potential and pursue other forms of economic development. Resilience refers to the ability of an energy system to continue to provide reliable electrical power when an alternate source of electricity has been found. resilience also implies the ability of a system to avoid any negative impacts following the use of alternative forms of energy.

To implement all these key concepts into domestic energy policies

it would be important for governments to take a lead from international agencies like the World Wildlife Fund (WNF) and the Global Environment Facility (GEF). These international bodies work towards sustainable energy policies by enabling governments to take precautionary measures to conserve energy resources. This helps to make people’s lives easier by ensuring that the current levels of energy are maintained while making greater use of those energies that come from natural sources like the sun, wind, and water rather than artificial sources of energy.
