ABSTRACT

The following measures and efforts are required as an increase in energy consumption and Co2 emission in U.S has been a critical problem in the current era. First, operate energy efficiency. Fundamentally, efforts regarding decrease in Co2(Carbon dioxide) emission by improving energy consumption system improving energy efficiency and exchanging fuel Especially using energy reducing devices in the country’s main energy-consuming products and social facilities will lead to decrease in energy spending. These reducing devices and facilities will play a pivotal role in the practice of lower Co2 emission. Second, Energy efficiency policies and new and renewable energy development is required. In order to increase energy efficiency, not only developing energy reducing technology on electronic goods, facility, and IT is required, but also enforcing energy efficiency standards is necessary. Also, the current development in new and renewable energy is very crucial. Third, vitalize the energy market. In order to make energy efficiency, we need to energize the demanding market as much as saving energy. Thorough understanding and cooperation among energy consumers, enterprises, and the government is necessary. Forth, the usage of information regarding energy should be expanded. We need the energy consumers to provide their energy consuming data and have them make access to information on energy usage. Government and corporations should provide consumers with online energy consumption data by a single click and motivate their use of data in every way. Fifth, Energy labeling should be activated. Consumers must obtain an a elevated understanding to energy labeling and the policies need to gain public trust. Energy labeling is used for the purpose of saving energy in many different organizations, parties, and corporations in an international and national perspective, therefor its unity and strictness must be maintained. Sixth, energy policies must be activated. We need to strengthen energy efficiency certifying policy which is the main policy in energy political measures. This policy is legal・political energy saving policy, therefor volunteer participation from the government, businesses, and the people are required. Seventh, technological innovation in energy saving policy is required. In order to solve critical energy issue, scientific・technological development is demanded. The government need to support regulations, tax deductions, volunteer programs, subsidy and informative campaigns in order to build a technological market that meets the nation’s policy goals. Legal・political considerations regarding the U.S energy efficiency regulation and its problems and current policies have been described as above, and in order to solve the current critical energy issue, diverse energy saving measures and development in new and renewable energy are mandatorily required. These efforts are expected to relieve the current energy crisis in earth and also prevent global warming as well. As a result, we would need to acknowledge the severe energy crisis on earth and maintain a sustainable energy environment by saving energy at all time, and live in a clean, unpolluted environment by putting specific effort to prevent any further environmental pollution on earth. Therefore legal・political measures and efforts must be implemented in a near time, In order to actively realize the above articles.
