All the efficiency measures described in this article, and many others also available, achieve substantial fuel and energy savings, usually with similarly substantial long-term economic savings. Laws in place at the federal, state, and local levels can promote energy-efficient decisions and investments, or act as barriers. Thus, in advising clients about how best to insulate themselves from the vulnerabilities of reliance on traditional energy resources, the energy-efficiency measures outlined above should be valuable in pointing the way to achieving economies in the quickest and most cost-effective way. As importantly, lawyers can act on behalf of their clients by identifying where legal and regulatory barriers exist, and then work to remove them. The end result will be more prosperous clients and a more secure, healthy and economically sound nation.
