It therefore seeks to justify the need through policy formulation, funding through research and development and technical initiatives to realize energy efficiency. Annotated bibliography Patridge, Robert B. Energy Efficiency: Challenges and Trends for Electric Utilities. S.l.: Diane Pub Co, 2003. http://www.asu.edu/title/energy-efficiency-challenges-and-trends-for-electric-utilities/oclc/795292357 Patridge defines energy efficiency as any positive measures taken to reduce energy consumption. He further states that this involves the deliberate substitute of more energy efficient equipments to produce the same amount of energy with less electricity and changing consumer behavior to cut energy use. He is of the view that energy efficiency is achieved through replacing, upgrading or maintaining existing equipment to reduce the amount of energy needs in lighting, heating, cooling, propelling machines and transportation. I am of the opinion that energy efficiency therefore contributes greater energy productivity and economic efficiency as opposed to renewable energy alternatives....
The Wall Street Journal, Before Adding Try Reducing by Sari Krieger. 2012. http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052970203771904574179270925771280 The U.S. government continues to offer a lot of subsidies and tax incentives to expand renewable energy instead of committing funds to energy efficiency and subsidize conservation. Susan Krieger a reporter for Dow Jones Clean Technology Insights in New York notes that billions of funds are pledged in support of renewable energy instead of encouraging the use of less energy in industrial production and domestic use. Those in favor of energy conservation argue that we need more subsidies and tax incentives on insulation, light emitting diodes (LED) in building and industrial systems which in the long-run result to less waste of energy in cooling, heating and lighting. Natalie Mims an energy consultant at Rocky Mountain Institute, Snowmans, Colo says that renewable energy often costs more, take longer to recoup on investment compared to energy efficiency measures which tend to receive less subsidies, tax incentives and funding particularly in research and development. From my point of view I think that newer energy conservation technology may be cost effective even with a high initial cost but are also yet to be embraced by the wider public due to unavailable information. The Natural Resources Defense Council. Renewable Energy For America, Harvesting the Benefits of Home-grown Renewable Energy. 2013. http://www.nrdc.org/energy/ According to a recent study by the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) of America, developing clean renewable energy sources has not only the potential to add to our power supply but also enhance sustainability and environmental protection.

In order to develop my professional expertise in both awareness and methods for managing OSHA compliance in an organization, I would first be sure to read up on the industry specific compliance resources that are located on OSHA’s website. Once I have done so, I would then move on to the OSHA compliance assistance and outreach program, and I would be sure to check the OSHA approved state programs to see if my organization is located in a state with different or additional requirements as specified by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA, 2013).
Ill Mind of Hopsin 5 The rap song Ill Mind of Hopsin 5 is by the self-made hip hop artist Hopsin 5. The text of the song is the rhyming poetry called rap. The song starts with Hopsin cursing rap music and calling himself a freak and then ends with the line that “I just need you to be willing to journey into my Ill Mind” (Hopsin 5, 2012).
Regardless of what style of music people are listening to, the truth is, everyone listens to music. Music, like laughter, is a universal concept, the reason and sources of that laughter or musical content may differ, but the act is universal. Music plays an essential role in people’s lives, moods, and entertainment.
Another notable program that I would seek assistance from is the OSHA On-site Consultation Program.
The first process that I would initiate in order to ensure that my firm is in line with OSHA rules is to have a health
I chose this topic because this is very relevant today especially to students like us. We are also affected by the issue raised by Ann Cooper because I too eat in our student canteen and I begin to notice that the kind of
