Previously released within a Special Edition Fraser of Allander Economic Commentary: Energy and Pollution (ISSN 2046-5378), this paper reports on research funded by the UK Economic and Social Research Council through the ESRC First Grants Initiative (ERSRC grant reference RES-061-25-0010). As part of a project investigating the source and magnitude of economy-wide rebound effects from increased energy efficiency, this paper is based on an interview conducted with Dr Karen Turner by Maggie Koerth-Baker, a science journalist working on a book for Wiley & Sons about the future of energy in the United States. The Appendix material on energy efficiency policies that may be affected by the phenomenon of rebound has been compiled by two of the research fellows on the ESRCfunded project, Janine De Fence and Cathy Xin Cui.
