a newsletter aiming to cause change with less effort

Concise Encyclopedia [1]: ' Energy - The ability of one system to do work on another system. '

Wikipedia [2]: ' In general, the word energy refers to a concept that can be paraphrased as "the potential for causing changes", therefore one can say that energy is the cause of any change. '

J&P on The Energy Saver newsletter: ' Saving YOU time and effort to get relevant information, consequently hopefully result in change [to the better] '

I.e., the newsletter is not limited to energy per the natural sciences definition but we'll explore anything that can save you time, make you or your operations more efficient and productive.

[W]=Wikipedia article

1 Joule = 1 newton-metre* ~ 6.24×1018 eV. 1 kWh = 3.6 MJ ~ 3410 Btu. 1 Btu ~ 1055 J ~ 0.00029 kWh. (1000 Btu = 0.29 kWh). (1 man-hour = one man or woman working for one hour. Let us get back to you on the subject on conversions into other units...)

* "meter" vs. "metre": As it happens, Sweden and US [English] both uses "meter" whereas British English uses "metre" (SI definitions uses British English. More on American and British English differences, on meter.
