This book presents 25 energy efficiency recommendations from the IEA which could,
if implemented globally without delay, reduce global CO2 emissions by 8.2 gigatonnes
per year by 2030 – equivalent to roughly two-times the amount of current EU CO2 emissions.
This innovative book provides the first assessment of IEA member countries’ progress
on implementing energy efficiency policy. Using a rigorous evaluation process, it
finds that while these countries are implementing a full range of energy efficiency
measures, their efforts fall short. Pressing energy, climate and financial challenges
require even more energy efficiency policy action – particularly in the transport
sector. To address this action gap, IEA member countries must urgently ramp up their
energy efficiency policy efforts. The IEA and its member countries can play a critical
role in promoting the Agency’s call for “Worldwide Implementation Now” (W.I.N.) of
energy efficiency. What will it be? W.I.N or lose the opportunity?
