Abstract

The relationship between greenhouse gas emissions and electricity consumption is deeply interconnected. The generation and utilization of electric energy, particularly from non-renewable sources such as coal, oil, and natural gas, significantly contribute to the release of greenhouse gases, exacerbating the global climate crisis. To address this pressing issue, it is crucial to optimize electricity consumption and promote the use of renewable energy sources.One key strategy is to encourage the development and utilization of renewable energy. Solar, wind, and hydro power offer sustainable alternatives to fossil fuels, reducing our reliance on them and subsequently decreasing greenhouse gas emissions. Governments can play a pivotal role by formulating policies and implementing incentives to drive increased investment and adoption of renewable energy technologies.Improving energy efficiency is another vital aspect. Enhancing the efficiency of power equipment and systems, as well as reducing overall energy consumption, can effectively reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Real-world data from residential areas demonstrates the potential impact of such improvements. For instance, in 2017, residential electricity consumption amounted to 810KW·h, resulting in greenhouse gas emissions of 5.8 million cubic meters. However, by 2022, with the gradual integration of renewable energy sources, residential electricity consumption increased to 2320KW·h.
