A key recommendation of the Bush administration's National Energy Policy was the reduction of the energy intensity of the U.S. economy--the amount of energy required to produce a unit of economic output. As a step toward implementation, in May 2002, the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy gathered more than 150 energy experts from federal, state, and local government; industry; academia; and nongovernmental organizations at its E-Vision 2002 Conference to discuss ways of reducing the country's energy intensity. This volume summarizes the presentations and discussions that took place at the conference. For each of four main energy-consuming sectors of the American economy--as well as for the economy as a whole--participants examined historical trends and possible futures in energy intensity; reviewed private- and public-sector experiences at energy intensity reduction; identified current options; and defined goals and the actions necessary to achieve them. Volume II on CD-ROM contains additional conference material and is enclosed with the report.

The Jevons Paradox And The Myth Of Resource Efficiency Improvements

The Jevons Paradox, which was first expressed in 1865 by William Stanley Jevons in relation to use of coal, states that an increase in efficiency in using a resource leads to increased use of that resource rather than to a reduction. This has subsequently been proved to apply not just to fossil fuels, but other resource use scenarios. For example, doubling the efficiency of food production per hectare over the last 50 years (due to the Green Revolution) did not solve the problem of hunger. The increase in efficiency increased production and worsened hunger because of the resulting increase in population. The implications of this in todays world are substantial. Many scientists and policymakers argue that future technological innovations will reduce consumption of resources; the Jevons Paradox explains why this may be a false hope. This is the first book to provide a historical overview of the Jevons Paradox, provide evidence for its existence and apply it to complex systems. Written and edited by world experts in the fields of economics, ecological economics, technology and the environment, it explains the myth of efficiency and explores its implications for resource usage (particularly oil). It is a must-read for policymakers, natural resource managers, academics and students concerned with the effects of efficiency on resource use.
