Thermodynamical considerations of energy and entropy are being pursued in order to arrive at a general starting point for relating entropy, negentropy, and information. Thus one hopes to ultimately arrive at a common denominator for quantities of a more general nature, including economic parameters. The report closes with the description of various heating applications and related efficiencies.

Such considerations are important in order to understand in greater depth the nature and composition of energy demand. This may be highlighted by the observation that it is, of course, not the energy that is consumed or demanded for but the information that goes along with it.
