Green energy: which is the best?

The market minted renewable sources as green energy. I dare say, however, that the best green energy - and by far - is that which has not been consumed!

When discussing with executives from companies and institutions, I show that before going for a list of "green energy"  solutions, it makes sense to manage the current energy consumption to reduce waste. Plain and simple. 

It is essentially about changing behaviors. It is simple but not always easy because the human being is complicated! And most importantly it is a super low cost endeavor. 

Experience tells me that a successful way to make it happen is creating a plan of objectives associated with bonuses for results achieved.
