  • EE improvement is often hampered by market, financial, information, institutional, and technical barriers. According to survey and interviews, while consumer awareness and low energy prices are two major barriers to EE commonly mentioned worldwide, the lack of affordable financing and the perceived riskiness of EE ranked especially high in the EBRD region.EE policy doesn’t deliverEE savings exist, but in small pockets trapped beneath the these barriers rather than beneath the earth’s surface.
  • Finally, it is important to remember that energy efficiency policies will deliver co-benefits. Low income energy efficiency programmes include measures to:improve the quality of the building shell of a home; improve efficiency of energy-using equipmentThese measures have proved effective in:Reducing energy bills by 25-30 percentAs insurance against fuel price increasesADDITIONAL co-benefits, for household itself, for broader society, and for utilities and the government, include:Quality of life improvements for participantsHealth benefits and greater productivity for participantsLower fuel assistance paymentsProperty value increases from rehabilitationJobs creationSocietal benefits etc…These co-benefits are important to consider for very practical reasons and cost effectiveness is one critical benefit: In Summary, delivering energy services to all of our citizens and in a manner that is environmentally sustainable is critical. Many policy measures will be necessary, but the first and most cost effective will be energy efficiency.

    2. 2. 1. What is IPEEC? 1
    3. 3. Efficiency Cooperation: an Autonomous Entity Members account for over 75% of world GDP and energy EU use. Germany United Kingdom France Italy Russia Canada USA Mexico Japan Republic of Korea China India Brazil Australia IPEEC was established in 2009 at the G8 summit in Italy;Secretariatis located in Paris, France Facilitates Implementation of Energy Efficiency Improvement 2
    4. 4. IPEEC: a High-level International Forum  Provides global leadership on energy efficiency by identifying and facilitating government implementation of policies and programs that yield high energy efficiency gains.  Promotes information exchange on best practices and facilitates initiatives to improve energy efficiency.  Reports to G20 Summit, Clean Energy Ministerial and others.  Partners with industry to promote rapid deployment of energy efficient technology. 3

    8. 8. Barriers to Energy Efficiency Barrier Examples Market Market organisation and price distortions prevent customers from appraising the true value of energy efficiency. The principal agent problem, in which the investor does not reap the rewards of improved efficiency (the classic case being the landlord-tenant situation). Transaction costs (project costs are high relative to energy savings). Financial Up-front costs and dispersed benefits discourage investors Perception of EE investments as complicated& risky - high transaction costs Lack of awareness of financial benefits on the part of financial institutions. Information and awareness Lack of sufficient information and understanding, on the part of consumers, to make rational consumption and investment decisions. Regulatory and institutional Energy tariffs that discourage EE investment (such as declining block prices and fuel subsidies). Incentive structures encourage energy providers to sell energy rather than invest in cost-effective energy efficiency. Institutional bias towards supply-side investments. Technical Lack of affordable energy efficiency technologies suitable to local conditions. Insufficient local capacities to identify,develop, implement and maintain energy efficiency investments.
    9. 9. Energy Efficiency Financing Trends  Global “clean” energy - total deal value & percentage share by sector (deal numbers shown in parenthesis) 8
    10. 10. IPEEC‟s Sustainable Buildings and Communities Initiatives Capture the global energy savings potential in the building & communities sectors by: 1. Identifying & filling information gaps; 2. Disseminating information on building EE through web platform and capacity building events; 3. Publishing “policy pathways” to ensure effective implementations of buildings EE policies; 4. Developing peer-to-peer training toolkits; 5. Enhancing collaboration between existing actors & networks in developing and developed countries. 9
    11. 11. Building Energy Efficiency Task Conceptual Framework  „Design, build, and operate‟ Model – uses the building life cycle.  Analyze the various implementation mechanisms and assess the impacts of rating tools & programs. Expected Outcomes  Increase multilateral cooperation in the field of building EE rating.  Facilitate deployment of effective EE rating tools & programs.  Enable greater sharing of the building design, construction & performance data that are both inputs to & outputs of rating tools. 10
    12. 12. Co-Benefits of Improved Energy Efficiency Reduced emissions Reduced energy infrastructure costs Fewer energy subsidies Higher property values Reduced unwanted mobility Improved human health Local employment Improved community appearance Local spending and more…
    13. 13. Moving Forward Governments need to commit and also provide the following:  Overarching policy framework combining mandatory and voluntary policies and strengthening enforcement.  Remove barriers that distort markets such as energy subsidies.  Promote an integrated “systems approach” instead of a sector approach (such as the “smart cities”). And Business needs to:  Move towards an integrated value chain approach where suppliers extend their service portfolio to offer complete solutions (auditing, installation, maintenance and financing solutions).  Develop innovative financing vehicles for EE projects by collaborating with financial institutions & developing expertise in EE project financing. Behavioral change is a key driver of EE improvement. 12
