ABSTRACT
The article presents information on how rising energy prices have resulted in energy efficiency the world over. In South Africa, Eskom, the national utility, has warned that power cuts could continue right through to 2010. It is one of the first utilities in the world turning to renewable energy as a result of supply problems rather than government-mandated targets. Its customers are adopting an energy-saving mindset, turning off electric equipment at the wall, avoiding use of washing machines during peak hours, and baking less.
