  3. 3. IEA 2019. All rights reserved. Energy intensity improvements have slowed due to weaker energy efficiency policy implementation and strong growth in energy intensive economies. This trend must be reversed on a sustainable energy pathway. Energy intensity improvements have slowed due to weaker energy efficiency policy implementation and strong growth in energy intensive economies.
