One of the most important goals of public policy to stimulate the transition to a sustainable energy system is to improve energy efficiency (EE) and to accelerate progress towards sustainable development. Indeed, according to the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE), “Improving energy efficiency is one of the most cost-effective options for meeting growing energy demand in most countries. It contributes to energy security, a better environment, improved quality of life, and economic well-being” (UNECE, 2017a, p.10). While it is generally recognized that significant progress is being made, there is still substantial potential for improving energy efficiency worldwide.
