Perhaps the most immediate impact on energy can be obtained by increasing the efficiency of electrical applicances. The breakdown of electricity consumption in the US is shown below. Work within EECS at MIT specifically addresses the important consumption categories of lighting, space ventilation and heating, as well as electronics and appliances. (See Fig. 10, below).
