1. What is able to subsist without help and consumes the less energy as it is possible (or produces all the energy that consumes) could be named self-sufficient. In this sense, what auto- means, it refers to the capability of developing and administering energy on its own. However, auto- has to do with own-self properties so that auto-beings are no other than those that can (re)produce more of themselves. Auto-beings are indeed self-sufficient beings and so, sustainable ones.
