The Active Energy Alliance (AEA) is an organization that is committed to educating others on all things “energy.” Since our inception, we have balanced modern technology with the natural world, and sought ways to maximize the benefits that people can draw from both, either separately or together. Beyond our mission of education, we have recently branched out into the development of techniques and hardware to allow some devices to operate more efficiently. However, our true love is conservation. With that in mind, we are kicking off the “Shut it Down” message campaign.
In this modern day and age, we are constantly bombarded with information. Visual and auditory stimulation from technological devices never stops, and the devices never stop, either. Though many modern energy devices are efficient with how they use power, the sheer number of devices and the increased use of them has caused overall energy use to increase dramatically. In other words, the devices aren’t the problem; the problem is the way they’re used.
