America can look within to achieve
energy security and reduce global warming.

Policy enhancements address the nation’s
need for energy today, tomorrow, and
well into the future.

Energy = Future

Think Efficiency

A Different Kind of Energy Efficiency Report

Scientific and Technological Emphasis

Energy Future: Think Efficiency differs from other energy efficiency reports in its emphasis on scientific and technological options and analysis. Developed by a panel of leading experts in energy policy with backgrounds in physics, engineering, economics, and policy, Energy Future: Think Efficiency examines what works, what can work soon, and what is feasible for the future. Based on emerging technologies, this report targets which research and development gives America the best return for its dollars.

The News is Good

Key Energy Efficiency Conclusions

After scientifically evaluating a wide variety of energy-saving ideas and alternative energy sources, such as hybrid cars, hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, solar power, and wind power, the report recommends many short term and long term goals. The good news is that the news is good.

  • Improving energy efficiency is relatively easy and inexpensive.
  • Numerous technologies already exist to increase energy efficiency and save consumers money.

Buildings and Transportation

Highlighting Highest Consumption

Focusing on transportation and buildings, two areas that consume two-thirds of our energy, Energy Future: Think Efficiency specifically outlines priorities for the next administration’s energy policies—for the immediate future and decades ahead.


The Leading Professional Organization of Physicists

APS is the American Physical Society, a society created a century ago for the purpose of advancing and diffusing the knowledge of physics. APS offers this landmark report to identify America’s most effective energy saving strategies.
