Abstract: Electrical energy conservation provides more opportunity than any other energy source in terms of: investment; operating cost; impact on the environment, our health, and climate change; renewability; sustainability; local employment; and benefit to future generations. The risk is that we may not be able to achieve all of the available potential. Alternative energy sources are not capable of providing the required quantity of electricity and benefits. It will be necessary to hedge the conservation projections with traditional generation technologies to bridge to future electricity energy production sources with the necessary capabilities.
