Best practices in energy efficiency: high impact policies and measures

To date various policy recommendations have tended to be structured around a sectoral approach, and offer generic recommendations. To varying degrees the available policy recommendations try to promote policies and measures that are essentially cost effective, politically palatable and where there is a recognized experience base. Typically, existing policy recommendations stop short of recommending actual policies and programmes. There is now sufficient experience and development of policies and measures to be able to highlight best practice policies and measures as exemplars supported by evaluated experience and cost effectiveness analysis.
