    of the Earth book that Lovins has authored or coauthored.2 With Soft Energy Paths, Lovins joins Barry Commoner3 as a leading advocate of the anticon ventional energy position, positing a variety of social and environmental benefits from a change in the technology of energy production. Lovins characterizes most conventional energy production. Hard energy paths are community unfriendly. Hard energy paths are controlled by global corporations. Hard energy paths siphon resources and money out of the community and destabilise the world economy, soft energy paths recycle resources and money within the community. Soft energy paths are part of the process of localisation, retaining control.

The Hard and Soft Energy Paths -- according to Amory Lovins --In his Foreign Affairs article entitled "Soft Energy Paths", and in his subsequent book of the same title, Amory Lovins (founder of the Rocky Mountain Institute) contrasted the "Hard Energy Path", as forecast at that time by most electrical utilities, and the "Soft Energy Path.

Mar 15,  · The alternative, soft energy path, included an increase in energy efficiency and renewable energy sources such as wind, solar, geothermal, biofuels, and more.

In addition, he argued that pursuing soft energy paths would lead to an increase in global social benefit. Technological changes have also facilitated many steps along the soft energy path. Even though the US lacks a coherent CO2 policy, other policies such as Energy Star and CAFE have improved energy efficiency.

On the other hand, technological change has also meant that we have taken steps on the hard energy paths as well. Amory Lovins characterized these dominant energy systems as “hard”—inflexible and unresponsive to the needs of real human beings—and the alternative option as “soft.” The choice to pursue hard energy paths versus soft energy paths, or centralized versus appropriate technologies, was explicitly articulated as a political johnsonout.com by: 2.
