About the product
The growing demand for energy has become a serious concern to the global community due to dwindling fossil fuel resources and the environmental impact of unsustainable consumption and production patterns. Though some steps have been taken to incorporate energy efficiency in many sectors, there remain enormous opportunities for end-use energy efficiency in the ESCAP region. This publication focuses on contemporary issues related to energy consumption and emphasizes the importance of industry, road transport, building and construction and electrical appliances. The vital policy options for these sectors are discussed and supplemented with experiences, case studies, basic energy data and sustainability parameters.
