Energy efficiency relates to process, environment, and material, all effects (relationships benefit the inputs) of creative activities of matter, energy, and information. The higher the level of recognition of processing and transformation needs, the smaller a contribution of undesirable effects to the achievable objectives of the activities. The purpose of the environmental effects is to combine planning and freedom – not through impractical, impermanent compromise, but through voluntary recognition of the legitimacy of and need for both of them.

4.2. Energy System Analysis

The global, environment-functional potential of operation, energy and renovation is analysed. According to designation, the functional potential of technical system is the whole of its external operating possibility (Sienkiewicz, 1986):

  • Human Potential:PL(t),

  • Technical Potential:PT(t),

  • Energy - Material Potential:PE(t),

  • Controlling Potential:PS(t).

Function of operating potential:

(4.1) and especially:


Operating (energy) potential equation in the period [t0, T]:

(4.3) where:

  • Pd(to): Initial operating potential of global acting or only: bio-material, polymer- and fibre-waste or water waste, willows, oil plants, corn straw, flowing rivers, wind, sun rays, hydrogen, magneto hydrodynamics, farm bio-gas, heat pumps, oceans or the Baltic Sea, fuel cell coal and nuclear energy,

  • : Density of effectively used stream of potential,

  • : Density of lost stream of potential,

  • : Density of recovered (or obtained from the environment) stream of potential.
