Energy Efficiency

Overview

As IEA reports in the Wold Energy Outlook, energy efficiency offers a powerful and cost-effective tool for sustainable economic development. However, despite the efforts by major energy-consuming countries, a large share of economic potential of energy efficiency (80% in the buildings sector and more than 50% in industry) will not reach at its maximum level unless the world resorts to drastic policies. (The World Energy Outlook, 2012) As a club of major development financial institutions, IDFC has strong rational to work on the promotion of energy efficiency in this regard.

Energy efficiency pertains to a wide area of sectors including buildings, industry and transportation, thus covering issues as infrastructure and urban development. Considering that more than around 70% of the natural resource consumption including energy arise from cities, the Group will also pay due attention to the sustainable urban development, and tries to address the relevant issues such as how to promote modal sift and energy efficient & smart infrastructure development in collaboration with other WGs.

The Working Group has produced a good practice report on the IDFC members and other institutions’ experiences in promoting energy efficiency for wider public distribution
