Sustainability trends | How can we all cut energy consumption?
Reducing our personal carbon emissions is a great way to help address global warming. LED lights pay for themselves in a short amount of time, to save energy and money. The SUV segment continues to grow, as people want a mix of performance, comfort and space, but they don't want the gas guzzlers of the past. Automakers across the world are offering more eco-friendly options. New vehicles like the Audi e-Tron have been a huge hit, fully electric but with excellent performance. Smarter homes with motion sensors, smart locks and bulbs, cleaning robots and other smart appliances, make our lives more comfortable and practical. Smart home gadgets will become more energy efficient, either by using less electricity or by actively preventing people from using more than they need. This will include smart thermostats, smart energy monitors and even smart curtains.
