More energy efficiency in the European Union

European UnionI have been an advocate of energy efficiency for years and believe it is the best solution to solve the energy and climate equation. So when the European Union plans to ban importing energy inefficient goods I can only applaud the initiative.

This is done to enable the 27 countries and their 500 million inhabitants to be more energy efficient. The EU wants to be 20 percent more efficient by 2020.  Could the USA or other countries do the same ?

I personally believe we could do more, but at least it’s a good start for Europe.  To learn out more, please check out these articles from TreeHugger and Bloomberg.
