FOREWORD

Most APEC economies have implemented programmes of one kind or another to enhance the efficiency of their energy use. The potential benefits in terms of lower energy costs, enhanced energy security, and reduced environmental impacts are widely understood. However, there have always been significant barriers to achieving these benefits, among which are lack of motivation, information, expertise and financing. Thus, programmes aimed at addressing and surmounting these barriers are vital to both economic well-being and sustainable development.

Developing and transitional APEC economies are often growing rapidly from relatively low levels of output, income and energy use. Thus, energy efficiency programmes can be particularly valuable to them as a means of harbouring scarce financial and energy resources. Yet their energy efficiency programmes are much less often discussed and analysed than those of more developed economies, and hence much less well understood. Through a systematic presentation of these programmes, the outlines of a successful approach to promoting energy efficiency may emerge.

The present document follows up on several earlier works related to energy efficiency indicators. It is published by APERC as an independent study and does not necessarily reflect the views or policies of the APEC Energy Working Group or individual member economies. But we hope it will serve as a useful basis for discussion as energy efficiency programmes move forward.
