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

Let's not pretend that price is an insignificant factor in property improvements needed to optimized Choices®, if any, of fuel and efficient consumption by every "housing unit".

I look at my spreadsheet. In one year I reduced the cost of my HH energy consumption from $3K to $2K simply by sweating in the summer and shivering in winter: simple demand destruction, practiced by low-income families in memoriam.

Let's not pretend anymore that the principal barrier to carbon "neutrality" and "access" to high-efficiency heating and cooling equipment can be eliminated by promoting more, novel prototypes of hi-fi "tools" in some mythical, competitive marketplace, where 85% of buyers cannot afford to install them, much less support internet subs hosting "WiFi enabled" appliance apps that measure consumption up to the minute.
