What's The Difference Between Energy Efficiency And Energy Conservation

Bismillahirrahmanirrahim

Assalammualaikum wbt.
Hey! Good to see you again. 
People often get confused with "energy efficiency" and "energy conservation".  Are they the same? NO. I'll explain what is energy efficiency and energy conservation also what are the differences between them in this article.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY

Energy efficiency means using less energy to provide the same service. For example, a compact fluorescent bulb is more efficient than a traditional incandescent bulb as it uses much less electrical energy to produce the same amount of light. Similarly, an efficient boiler takes less fuel to heat a home to a given temperature than a less efficient model

ENERGY CONSERVATION

Energy conservation include forgoing a service rather than changing the efficiency with which it is provided. Examples of energy conservation include turning down a thermostat in the winter or walking to the shops rather than driving there.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY vs. ENERGY CONSERVATION

Energy Efficiency

reduce the amount of energy required to provide products and services. For example, insulating a home allows a building to use less heating and cooling energy to achieve and maintain a comfortable temperature. Improvements in energy efficiency are generally achieved by adopting a more efficient technology or production process or by application of commonly accepted methods to reduce energy losses. There are many motivations to improve energy efficiency. Reducing energy use reduces energy costs and may result in a financial cost saving to consumers if the energy savings offset any additional costs of implementing an energy efficient technology. Reducing energy use is also seen as a solution to the problem of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. According to the International Energy Agency, improved energy efficiency in buildings, industrial processes and transportation could reduce the world's energy needs in 2050 by one third and help control global emissions of greenhouse gases

Energy Conservation

reducing of energy consumption through using less of an energy service. For example, driving the same amount with a higher mileage vehicle. Energy conservation is a part of the concept of sufficiency. Even though energy conservation reduces energy services, it can result in increased environmental quality, national security, personal financial security and higher savings. It is at the top of the sustainable energy hierarchy. It also lowers energy costs by preventing future resource depletion
