Put simply, more efficient energy use will mean you spend less on energy.  The money you invest should be returned through cheaper bills after the improvements are made.  Additionally, better energy efficiency can lead to more disposable income, allowing you to spend more on the things you really want to.  Improving your energy efficiency can also help to make you more independent, less vulnerable to supply failures and less exposed to price changes.  With a more comfortable home and workplace, there are also potential benefits for your health and well-being.
