Democracy is people (leaders) working for people (masses). I learnt over time (the hard way) that both new government leaders and government veterans with years of experience can easily ignore the people side of management. In fact, such ignorance of government and corporate leaders of having this blind spot is a result of the fact that their focus is so driven by external results and building an organization or society that is successful in the long-term is the last thing on the minds of these leaders.
Today, energy management is analogous to reducing contribution of global CO2 emissions. Estimated figures quoted by various energy management watchdogs are:
- 77% energy requirements of industries globally are met by coal and coal products
- 40% energy requirements of industries globally are met by electricity (including oil based power plants)
- 37% energy requirements of industries globally are met by natural gas
