Take a look around you.
Yes, really. Right now.
What do you see?
You might see lamps that are on, providing light for your workspace. You might see heating/cooling vents, pumping air that keeps your office at a comfortable temperature. You might look out the window and see cars or trucks driving past. You might see audio speakers (hopefully playing some beautiful music). You might see LED indicators lit up on printers or other electronics, signifying they’re getting power from the wall, even if they’re not currently in use. And if you were able to look inside the walls, you’d see wires and pipes moving electricity and water throughout the building.
What makes everything get to where it’s going?
In a word, energy. Everything around you runs on energy.
But not exactly the energy you’re thinking about…
