Energy efficiency is emerging as one of the key options that can help nations in Asia and the Pacific meet the region's growing energy needs in a clean and effective way.
Increasing the efficiency of energy use and supply yields lower costs and increases availability of energy. It also produces large environmental and economic benefits:
- It eases pressure on fossil fuel demand and energy prices.
- It improves energy security.
- It reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
Technical advancement and market dynamics offer greater opportunities to improve energy efficiency, have increased the viability of new and renewable sources of energy, and have expanded the options for off-grid and community-based electricity supply.
