In a way energy is a byproduct of petroleum refining. If you replaced the energy could you also replace the plastics, the rubbers, the asphalt, the jet fuel, etc. It's like rasing pigs but only eating the chops. Grandpa said use everything but the squeal. What saved the whales wasn't Greenpeace but Texas crude replacing all the whale oil produts.
