ABSTRACT
The best policies for achieving smart energy solutions are policies that reduce the most usage and demand for polluting and unreliable power. Consumers need to focus on using less energy through combinations of more expensive renewable energy, less expensive energy-efficiency and no-cost conservation. They need to evaluate and promote all strategies based on how usage and demand are reduced. Out-of-control growth in energy consumption makes it difficult and expensive to implement enough energy efficiency and renewable energy to keep up and phase out some of the dirtiest and most unreliable energy sources. Energy policies tend to focus on economics. States with coal reserves and coal-fired generators want more coal mining and burning despite environmental consequences.
