To What Extent Will Industrial Energy Efficiency Reduce Energy Use across the Economy?

Research output: Book/ReportOther report

Abstract

Industrial energy efficiency policy is typically targeted at the most energy intensive sectorsin the economy. Less energy intensive sectors that use a relatively high level of energy due to the scale of their activity may also be targeted. Either of these types of sectors may be targeted on the basis that large energy savings could be realised at industry-level. However, particularly where national energy use and emissions are a policy concern, there is a need to consider how changes in energy efficiency in one industry may impact throughout the wider economy.
