Conserving energy often means finding new sources of energy within a given “system”, like an automobile or truck, and using it.  For example, many hybrid cars have regenerative braking systems that extract energy when the brakes are applied. Essentially each wheel has a small electric generator in it that when engaged, produces electrical power.  This power, which is normally wasted as heat,  is fed back into the vehicle’s batteries.  By doing this, one can see an average of 10 to 15 percent improvement in fuel efficiency.
