The efficient use of energy is the key to maintaining our world’s resources; indeed our future depends on it. Energy conservation can be achieved through increased efficient energy use, in connection with decreased energy consumption and reduced consumption from conventional energy sources. Energy conservation can result in increased financial capital, environmental quality, national security, personal security, and human comfort. Individuals and organizations that are direct consumers of energy choose to conserve energy to reduce energy costs and promote economic security. In view of the nation's energy security interests, it is important to be increasing alternative fuel capability throughout the fleet. The need to ensure the nation's long-term energy security is of such vital concern that it takes precedent over possible short-term convention energy sources consumption and environmental impacts.
