Energy Efficiency; Buildings
Florida's 2004 electrical energy use was 233 billion kilowatt-hours. Over half (51%) of this energy use went to residential building energy. The state's current 10-year predictions for electrical energy use in 2014 show a requirement for approximately 308 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity, an increase of approximately 75 billion kilowatt-hours. This study presents an example of how Florida can radically alter its 2014 energy use projection by aggressively pursuing residential building energy efficiency improvements and aggressively increasing its use of proven renewable energy resources.
