The Oil crisis in 1973 has been the spark for the energy efficiency approach in the United States and all around the globe as well. During this time, prices of energy resources increased dramatically, which triggered fears that an era of resource scarcity with economic, political and security stress had begun.
On the other hand, more studies and research have recognized that the extraction, processing transport and use of energy was a major source of pollution.
In order to mitigate those problems, many countries have started federal and national programs to determine energy conservation and acceptable levels of energy use in different sectors (Industrial, Transportation, Residential and commercial sectors).
In the 1990s, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change known as the (UNFCC) has been signed by 154 nations. The main aim of the UNFCC was to push all the parties signing this treaty to protect the climate system.
However, energy still plays an important role in many aspects of our lives, and demand on it has been increasing year after year. Hence, the relation between energy use and the climate change is a complex relation. Energy in the US for example accounts for almost 84% of the greenhouse gas emission.
Also, due to the climate change we have now higher temperatures during the year, hence we are increasing our reliance on the AC system. This interchangeable relation has been one of the main incentives towards going into a more Energy efficient systems.
Site Technology made its mission to build its entire solutions around energy efficiency. Reducing energy costs, being responsible towards our planet and contributing in global temperature reduction.
ST aims to always make technology work in favor of human health and Mother Earth and being a tool for evolvement and prosperity.
