Write a 6 pages paper on energy management and efficiency in audit and investigation. On the other hand, as the population of the world is increasing, the requirement of power and energy is increasing at a rapid level. Thus, a direct relation can be drawn in the demand for power and the production of the greenhouse emissions that impact the environment. Research in the appliances sector made it possible to manufacture energy-efficient appliances that consume less energy and remain efficient (Guttromson, Chassin & Widergren, 2003), thus contributing less to the production of greenhouse emissions.
The ethical issue arise both relating to the environment and society (Pehnt 2006). The ethical issues discuss the loss of biodiversity, loss of planet vital viable resources, alteration in the natural processes like a hydrological cycle, the formation of cyclones and heavy winds, earthquakes, etc (Satterthwaite 2008). On the other hand, the ethical issues also cover the impacts that are directly or indirectly related to society like the impact on human health, impact on water sources that impact the vegetation and other food sources, and impact on the quality of air (Fleddermann 2004). Energy management is the term that relates to the organization and smart utilization of energy (Guttromson, Chassin & Widergren, 2003). The best method to lower the carbon footprint is to lower the personal consumption of energy. The lower the personal consumption of energy, the less energy will be energy load, and thus lower will be greenhouse emissions.
According to the Royal Academy of Engineering (2013), engineers should “identify the different, and sometimes competing ethical concerns they face”, “should analyze the issues that might underlie those concerns” and should “respond effectively to those concerns”. On the other hand, the utilization of alternate and sustainable resources of energy that produce no or limited carbon footprints reduces the impact of personal or societal energy.
