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.

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

ESCWA comprises 17 countries located in the Northern Africa and Western Asia. The energy sector of the ESCWA region has played and will continue to play an important role globally as well as within the region. It serves as a main source of revenue through oil and (to a lesser extent) gas export and it could potentially satisfy energy needs for economic and social development. However, more than 20% of the population in rural and urban poor areas of ESCWA member States do not have access to energy services and as many are highly underserviced. Moreover, in many cases, the efficiency of energy production and consumption in the region requires improvement.
