Strategic Plan for Advancing Energy Efficiency Across Demand Sectors by 2030
Data show that 3.2-4% global annual improvements in energy efficiency are possible, and all countries and sectors can ramp up progress. There is a wealth of experience in India and globally that can be leveraged for faster action. Energy efficiency is now a must-have and requires a focus on finding new ways to communicate the EE opportunity and mobilize more investments and stronger global cooperation in support of the Global South. The “Strategic Plan for Advancing Energy Efficiency Across Demand Sectors by 2030” outlines suggestions that the G20 can contemplate to advance energy efficiency objectives, thereby assisting in the attainment of Sustainable Development Goal 7 and meeting the decarbonization targets set by the Paris Agreement.
Under the guidance of the Bureau of Energy Efficiency of India, the Alliance for an Energy Efficient Economy, in partnership with Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL) and the International Energy Agency (IEA) launched this ambitious strategic plan. It offers a cross-sectoral analysis of high-impact opportunities to elevate energy efficiency across demand sectors by 2030:
- Rethinking Energy Codes for a Net-Zero World (RENEW)
- Scaling-up Motor Efficiency for Small and Medium Enterprises (SME2)
- Financing for Aggregating Services and Technologies (FAST)
- Comfort for an Affordable and Resilient Economy (CARE)
- Secure the Power of Energy Efficiency Data (SPEED)
