So if we are blowing 2-3 percent of our energy on office equipment, where does the rest go? Well, looks like 21 percent gets poured into homes. Doing a little math from this site, that's about 2 percent for air conditioning, 9 percent for space and water heating, and 8 percent to run appliances. Oh, and 2 percent is completely wasted through vampire energy. These are national numbers.
Tack on 28 percent for shuttling ourselves around.
Continuing, about 0.6 percent of our national energy to used to make cement. 15 percent goes to make food to eat. We blow about 3 percent making aluminium, wow. Lets see what we got:
- Transportation - 28
- Food -15
- Household Appliances - 8
- Internet - 3
- Household Air Conditioning - 2
- Household Heating - 9
- Aluminium - 3
- Household Vampire Energy - 2
- Cement - 0.6
