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.

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

As a result of local availability of natural resources and policies pursued by the member States of ECLAC region, primary energy production in Latin America and the Caribbean has been traditionally based mainly on petroleum. However, since 1970s its share as an energy source has been falling steadily, while the share of natural gas used for primary energy production has been steadily increasing. At the same time, in recent years countries of the ECLAC region have started to formulate and implement more and more projects in the area of energy efficiency and renewable energy.
