Energy Independence and
Low Carbon Economy Plan
The problem is United States' 42.5% energy efficiency. Energy conservation
have focused upon energy savings for residential, commercial and
industrial sectors, which are 75% efficient. However, the Transportation sector is 20% efficient; and Electric Power sector
is 33% efficient. According to the graph, Transportation and Electric
Power sectors waste over 14.7 trillion kilowatt-hours. At 10 cents per
kilowatt-hour, the value of the wasted energy is $1.47 trillion.

Today, 250 million
motor vehicles and thousands of fossil power plants are burning billions
of tons of coal, billions of gallons of oil, and trillions
of cubic feet of natural gas and producing billions of tons of carbon
dioxide that are destroying our environment. If government, business
and education leaders can work collegiately together as they did with the
Internet, the solution is to improve motor vehicleís and
fossil power plantís energy efficiencies by:
Having Tesla Motors,
Chrysler, and other automakers make millions of energy efficient
passenger cars, SUVs and trucks.
Since automakers are already making the vehicles, they need to mass-produce
them for the customers to buy.
