Drip Irrigation: using less water to achieve same yields by placing it exactly in the plant root zone where needed. Deciding when to turn on the drip irrigation can be assisted by moisture sensors in the soils which report back to a computer. Used to be that irrigation was in furrows on either side of the plant, or from overhead sprinklers (still used in some situations), both much less optimal because lots of water evaporated or sunk into the ground where plant roots were not able to reach it.

engineered wood products: using every bit of the tree to make useful products, eg: laminated products, pressboard products, sawdust products or even making useful products out of waste products, eg: sunflower seed hulls for pressed counter tops etc. HAYWARD LUMBER has a "humdinger" computer-assisted saw which pre-cuts building projects to minimize waste.

transporting freight via train: rather than by truck. More weight moved per unit of energy by far. Best use of fossil fuel.

Zip car: a shared car system which can replace individual ownership of a car

Three shifts in a factory: Using the factory building and facilities around the clock rather than letting things sit idle all evening and night. Or offering a summer quarter at a university, rather than leaving it empty for three months of every year. Or Monterey & Pacific Grove talking about sharing a Fire Department rather than each supporting their own.

Neighborhood Tool Sheds: Instead of each family owning a lawn mower, garden tools etc., a neighborhood can have a common set of tools with a check-out system. FULL CAPACITY USE : making sure a product, system, or labor force are being used to best advantage ... rather than sitting waiting to be used for a high percentage of the time or wasting energy. sharing use, or scheduling use as fully as possible. RESOURCE OPTIMIZATION: using the resources available to best advantage ... beyond efficiency, resource optimization includes decisions about the best and highest use of a resource.
