Energy efficiency technologies: overview report

1st March 2014

Topic(s): Energy efficiency

This report summarises the outcomes of a pilot project launched by the World Energy Council Knowledge Network on Energy Efficient Technologies in 2011. This work, focused on technologies, complements the well-established World Energy Council work on Energy Efficiency Policies, and more recent study projects addressing Energy Trilemma and Scenarios.

Energy efficient technologies can be found in all parts of the energy conversion chain: from exploration and production of primary energy resources, to power generation and oil refineries to electricity grids, to the final use in industry, buildings and transportation. But it is not only the technical potential which is crucial for successful introduction of energy efficient technologies. To assess the full potential of such technologies and identify the path towards their successful market introduction, it is necessary to consider their economic, realisable and also realistic potential.
