This publication aims to identify existing barriers to energy efficiency policy implementation and to provide recommendations to policymakers for reforms that can support market formation and foster favourable climate for investments in energy efficiency. It develops a benchmark that should serve as a reference point for policymakers and energy experts working in the field of energy efficiency. This benchmark is a synthesis of policy incentives that should be in place in order to stimulate and ensure successful energy efficiency policy outcomes. The desired policies are divided into three groups: 1) legal, institutional and regulatory; 2) economic and financial; and 3) socio-political. A set of these policies in place at a sufficient degree in a particular country is a basis for successful formulation and implementation of energy efficiency policies and related projects.

ESCAP region — Review, analysis and options to move forward to established benchmark for selected countries

The ESCAP region is characterized by vast social, economic, geographical and development disparities. This region is a home to more than 60% of world population. With the rising demand for energy due to ongoing economic and industrial development, the ESCAP region is in need of decisive energy efficiency improvements to guarantee the sustainability of the economic growth of its members. Given the strong political will shown by some countries and the numerous existing national and international programmes, the region is well placed to benefit from more systematic improvements in energy efficiency.
