IEA releases Regional Energy Efficiency Policy Recommendations

The IEA and member states "identified efficiency as the most rapid and cost-effective way to address energy security as well as environmental and economic challenges. To help countries improve their individual energy efficiency, in 2008 the IEA developed a set of 25 energy efficiency policy recommendations. These 25 recommendations have proven an effective way to increase awareness and obtain high-level political support for scaled-up energy efficiency efforts."
