In recent years, there has been growing concern about the impact of the amount of energy we use on the environment. Scientists, governments and industries globally are working to develop ways to reduce the impact. This is being done by encouraging people to use less energy, changing the ways in which energy is generated ( for example by using renewable energy sources), developing new technologies for cleaner and safer use and making laws so resources are used and managed better.
To meet and maintain our daily needs, without compromising the energy needs of future generations, we need to learn how to put our energy more efficiently. It is important not to waste energy as some of the sources which we generate our energy from won't be available forever.
