Energy efficiency and conservation (sometimes referred to as EEC) describe how people use energy, not where the sources of energy come from as with energy generation. Efficiency is the use of energy in a more effective way, so using less energy to achieve the same desired function. Conservation is behaviour or practice that results in the use of less energy.
