Industrial energy efficiency and energy management
Industrial energy consumption constitutes a third of global primary energy use. Industrial energy consumption is projected to increase at a rapid rate. Most of this growth will take place in non-OECD countries. Energy efficiency opportunities are still largely underexploited. IEA analysis indicates that much of the industrial savings potential can be captured through policies for promoting use and optimisation of energy-efficient industrial equipment and systems, and improving overall efficiency through energy management adjacent to measures to facilitate financing.
The objective of IEA Energy Efficiency Unit in the area of industrial energy efficiency is to provide policy makers and industrial energy efficiency policy implementers with actionable guidance on how to develop and improve programmes including supporting measures.
