Author(s) : IEA, GELLER H., ATTALI S.

Type of monograph: Booklet

Summary

Industrialized countries including France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States have significantly reduced their primary energy use per unit GDP over the last three decades. Major OECD countries taken together used a third less primary energy to generate a unit of GDP in 2000 compared with 1973. The goal of this paper was to compile, categorize, and evaluate energy efficiency policies. Learning from the critics means modifying policies where the criticism is justified and staying the course where it is not.
