Today, going through European Commission's communication on 'Clean Energy For All Europeans' [1], I came across such statement:

 

"Energy efficiency is the most universally available source of energy. Putting energy efficiency first reflects the fact that the cheapest and cleanest source of energy is the energy that does not need to be produced or used."

 

I have to admit that it really shocked me and I am not sure what to think about it. What are your thoughts on this?
