10 Recommendations in Brief

 

1. PRIORITISE CROSS-CUTTING ENERGY EFFICIENCY ACTION FOR ITS ECONOMIC, SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS

A stronger, all-of-government policy focus will enhance social and economic development, energy security and resilience, de carbonization, and rapid job creation and economic stimulus

2. ACT TO UNLOCK EFFICIENCY'S JOB CREATION POTENTIAL

Energy efficiency can quickly deliver job growth and can become a long-term, sustainable employment sector

3. CREATE GREATER DEMAND FOR ENERGY EFFICIENCY SOLUTIONS

Efficiency action will be most rapidly scaled up through a focus on increasing demand for efficient products and services and enabling greater levels of market activity

4. FOCUS ON FINANCE IN THE WIDER CONTEXT OF SCALING UP ACTION

Mobilising finance is an essential element of efficiency action, and policies to do so will be most effective if they are part of a wide, coherent approach to driving market scale

5. LEVERAGE DIGITAL INNOVATION TO ENHANCE SYSTEM-WIDE EFFICIENCY

Policymakers can take advantage of digital innovation's potential to enable smart control, better energy management, and wider energy system optimization

6. THE PUBLIC SECTOR SHOULD LEAD BY EXAMPLE

Governments should lead through investment in public sector efficiency and driving innovation and higher standards throughout its reach

7. ENGAGE ALL PARTS OF SOCIETY

Implementation of efficiency action can happen at all levels of society, with cities, businesses, and local communities all playing a particularly important role in its success

8. LEVERAGE BEHAVIOURAL INSIGHTS FOR MORE EFFECTIVE POLICY

People are at the centre of energy efficiency action, and insights from behavioural science can help design smarter policies

9. STRENGTHEN INTERNATIONAL COLLABORATION

International collaboration and exchange of best practice allow countries to learn from each other and to harmonise approaches and standards where appropriate

10. RAISE GLOBAL ENERGY EFFICIENCY AMBITION

Governments should be significantly more ambitious in both the short- and long-term when setting their efficiency targets, policies and actions
