Energy Efficiency: a Worldwide Review

This report presents and evaluates energy efficiency policies in 63 countries, with a specific focus on five policy measures:

  • Minimum energy efficiency standards for household electrical appliances;
  • Innovative energy efficiency funds;
  • Voluntary/negotiated agreements on energy efficiency/CO2;
  • Local energy information centres;
  • Packages of measures.

 

In particular, the report identifies the policy measures, which have proven to be the most effective, and can be recommended to countries which have recently embarked on the development and implementation of energy demand management policies.
