This book deals with a gamut of issues related to energy efficiency, development and environment with a view to provide a systematic framework for the efficient utilization of energy. While analyzing the barriers and drivers for energy-efficiency investments, it focuses on mobilization of private capital and the commercialization of energy-efficiency technologies. It also links the issue with the climate debate in terms of its causes, outcomes, policy initiatives, mitigation and adaptation methodologies.Energy Efficiency and Climate Change: Conserving Power for a Sustainable Future discusses the development of policy instruments to promote energy-efficiency investments that can bridge the gap between energy-efficiency potential and practice. It directly addresses the Energy Efficiency Gap that every country has faced in the form of opposition to energy reform policies. A discussion on implications of international laws on climate change is followed by proposing the commercialization of energy-efficient technologies, with special focus on the role of multilateral institutions in promoting the adoption of energy-efficiency measures. This book will be an important resource for academics working in the fields of economics and development studies and environment studies and also for policy makers and industrialists.
