Energy efficiency and renewable energy measures have many benefits. Energy efficiency measures reduce the demand for electricity and renewable energy can supply energy from non- or less- polluting sources. These measures can save money, have other economic benefits, reduce dependence on foreign sources of fuel, increase the reliability of the electricity grid, enhance energy security, and, most importantly for air quality purposes, reduce air emissions from electric generating power plants. Energy efficiency and renewable energy inherently prevent pollution from occurring. Additionally, in many areas, the peak demand for electricity frequently coincides with periods of poor air quality. It is therefore important to encourage and reward greater application of energy efficiency and renewable energy measures and incorporate the emission reductions that these measures will accrue into the air quality planning process.
