Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Higher energy costs and the diffusion of better technology will lead to more frugal energy use, independently of supposed consumer resistance or lack of political will : e.g. lighting consumption will be slashed by LEDs, without any policy encouragements. So I'm pretty aggressive about reducing per-capita energy consumption.

For example : why assume that energy consumption on commercial properties would double?  Is the population expected to double? I would expect it to be flat, at maximum, with enormous potential to decrease.
