Table 2 The contrast between the energy efficiency and rationalization [33]

From: Analysis of the pattern of energy consumptions and its impact on urban environmental sustainability in Jordan: Amman City as a case study

Energy efficiency Rationalizing energy consumption
• Energy efficiency depends on the use of advanced technology to reduce energy use, conserve the same much performance.
• Focus on the performance of equipment and machinery.
• Replace the traditional light bulbs with a more efficient (LED) as well as home thermal insulation and the use of energy-saving appliances.
• Rationalizing consumption depends on individual behavior, which leads ultimately to reduce energy consumption.
• Focus on the performance of human behavior.
• Switch off the light when out of the room.
