Any technology or behaviour change that results in less energy being used for a given task is energy conservation.


For example:

  • buying a fuel efficient hybrid car uses less fuel/mile travelled and so conserves oil resources.

  • changing your old incandescent light bulbs and installing new LED bulbs results in less energy being used to provide the same level of lighting - conserves electricity and fuel used to make power.
