“How can we reduce energy demand for washing machines?”

Washing machines have become fundamental to human life. However, they are also extremely energy intensive and intense on the environment. So how can we use our engineering and policy mindset to solve this? Well, this can be accomplished with three methods.

1. Demand-side response By shift use of washing machines away from peak hours, we can ensure that not only does it tax the grid less but potentially use more clean energy.

2. Model upgrades: By replacing older machines with newer, more energy efficient models, their energy intensity will drop.

3. Reducing usage: By using washing machines less and replacing them with passive drying mechanisms such as hanging clothes, energy consumption will drop.

All of these are How to Reduce Energy Demand for Washing Machines.
