Wow! Here comes Setsuden-mushi.! Chapter 4 Birth of Setsuden-mushi 4.5 Standby Power Consumption 4.5.3 What Setsuden-mushi can do
With changes in production and lifestyles, electricity demand has been rising steadily despite economic stagnation. This is due to the demand from households at first time and transportation demand, especially for transportation and freight.
From the standpoint of the electric power companies that supply electricity, it may be necessary to increase power generation facilities to meet the increase in demand in order to avoid blackouts during normal times. However, it is also a reality and a fact that the fossil fuels used are limited and that the risk of nuclear power generation is not zero.
Therefore, I believe that responding to demand by saving electricity is as important as or even more important than power generation.
What we can do, or what is required of each individual, is to suppress usage as much as possible, and to have and practice the idea of conserving and saving precious electricity in order to reduce the installation of power plants. This is the way to be effective in saving energy in the consumer sector.
The electricity saved in this way is then put to good use in areas where it is desperately needed.
We have the saying phrase "On-ko-chi-shin" (温故知新), which means to try to find a guide into tomorrow by taking lessons from the past. I think it is necessary to learn from the past. I think it is also necessary to learn about the old by seeking the old.
What Setsuden-mushi can do is not so big and as follows.
(1) Energy and electricity conservation 50 kWh to 1,200 kWh kWh/year
(2) Cost reduction ¥2,000 - ¥20,000/year
(3) Environmental preservation Reduction of carbon dioxide gas, prevention of global warming
(4) ISO14001 compliant Environmental management tool
As the saying goes, "A little dust makes a big mountain," and I believe that doing what you can do first will lead to great results, rather than aiming for something big out of the blue. A small step is better than a big step.
Incidentally, it was a local TV station, RCC (Chugoku Broadcasting Co., Ltd.) that announced the target power saving by Setsuden-mushi as 1 million kilowatts, which is equivalent to one nuclear power generation unit. The broadcast with other 7 introduction videos is posted on the following website.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6gdEqieXxw&ab_channel=KarlKamamoto
