About the product

The ESCAP secretariat has on various occasions conducted consultations with non-governmental organizations (NGO) and in particular with consumer organizations, on effective approaches and concepts regarding consumer information for the promotion of energy efficiency and sustainable energy use. This publication presents an outcome and recommendations of these discussions so that they can serve as a guideline to NGOs. The publication is comprised of three parts. Part one provides an introductory overview of the promotion of sustainable energy consumption in the residential sector of the region. Part two presents background information on essential legal, technical and policy aspects of campaigning for energy efficiency. The final part, aims at facilitating the exchange of information on best practices and presents five institutional profiles of selected energy efficiency promotion campaigns.
