Energy efficiency - the challenge & UNEP's response: #Action2015 #ActOnClimate

Energy efficiency is the area where most emission reductions can be achieved in the short term. Energy efficiency is therefore critical to combatting climate change. Energy efficient technologies, such as LED lamps for instance, use less energy while providing the same or better service, thereby substantially reducing greenhouse gas emissions when they are deployed in large numbers. The latest UNEP gap report identified energy efficiency as one of the four most promising areas of climate action, and the International Energy Agency (2013), analyzing these same four key areas singled out energy efficiency as the area with the largest potential. Energy efficiency also provides other benefits such as sustainable economic development, green job creation, reduction of pollution, improvement of human health, and alleviation of poverty through rendering energy services more afford...
