Earth Day 2017 – Energy Efficiency Enabled by Technology

April 17, 2017 , Industry
This year, more than a billion people from over 193 countries are expected to participate in Earth Day activities. Marking its 47th anniversary on Saturday, April 22, 2017, Earth Day is an annual event that promotes education and support for a healthy and sustainable environment. Improving energy efficiency is one important target that is continuously being improved through a number of innovations. According to the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy, semiconductor technologies have been critical to this progress. For example, thanks to these advances, the U.S. economy could grow by more than 70% through 2030 and still use 11% less electricity than in 2008. Here we take a look at a few ways that new technologies are helping to drive energy efficiency.
