In keeping with the objectives of this book, the discussion of energy conservation will be confined to attempts to conserve nonrenewable energy reserves, particularly fossil-fuel reserves, by using energy more efficiently to accomplish a desired task, thereby consuming a smaller amount of an energy reserve while still achieving the objective in the application, and avoiding waste or unnecessary consumption of energy. Other, more technical scientific and engineering definitions of energy conservation will not be discussed here.
