Energy Efficiency – Should We Take It Seriously?

In this Paper, Malcolm Keay looks at governments’ uncritical reliance on energy efficiency to achieve multiple energy policy objectives.  He concludes that most existing programmes are ill-directed, badly monitored and probably ineffective in reducing energy demand and emissions – indeed they may be diverting attention from more effective measures.  A more targeted approach is needed under which efficiency programmes are properly designed and monitored and integrated more effectively into low carbon strategies.
