About the product
The technical and economic viability of energy efficiency (EE) has become more pronounced as concerns about energy security, climate change and low carbon development intensify. Although the promotion of EE has long been identified as an effective policy tool to manage energy demand, active pursuit of EE still lags behind in many Asia/Pacific countries. This gap can be attributed to programmatic, informational and financial barriers as well as weakened capacity of national and regional institutions mandated to promote EE. This report presents a review of the existing EE institutional arrangements in Central, South, and South-East Asia and includes a presentation of good practices and case studies of some national and international EE institutions.
