Energy Efficiency Policies around the World: Review and Evaluation
Acknowledgements / Remerciements
This Report has been produced under the guidance of the World Energy Council's Programme Committee. More than 70 WEC Member Committees and other contributors have enthusiastically participated in the collaborative process of this study, particularly by providing information for a questionnaire on energy efficiency policies and measures. We would like to express our thanks to all the experts without whom the work would not have been accomplished. The study has also benefited from the contribution of more than 100 experts during three regional workshops: Bangkok (Asia), Abuja (Africa), Paris (Europe) and a general workshop in London to finalise this report. The expert input has added much value to the report by expanding the geographical coverage thus providing a broader dimension and regional focus for the evaluation of energy efficiency policies.
We greatly appreciate contributions from ENERDATA experts for the technical co-ordination; particularly that of Bruno Lapillonne, the director of this report, Nathalie Desbrosses responsible for developing the energy efficiency indicators, and Nathalie Bellia, for her assistance in the production of the report. We would also like to thank the authors of the five case studies included in this report for their expertise in the field of international comparison of energy efficiency policies' assessment: Diana Ürge-Vorsatz and her colleagues1 (Central European University), Philippe Menanteau (LEPI-EPE), Wolfgang Eichhammer (Fraunhofer/ISI), Romain Molitor (Trafico) and Eoin Lees. Finally, we extend our thanks to Elena Nekhaev of WEC London, for her encouragement and advice throughout this work.
