  • A huge increase in investment in energy efficiency is required if global energy systems are to be transformed to a more sustainable basis.
  • Energy efficiency has significant and well-documented economic and environmental benefits, especially in regions with a history of cheap energy and high energy intensity.
  • In countries with a supportive environment for energy efficiency, well-designed risk management products can accelerate investment rates and trigger long-term improvements in the pricing of energy efficiency risk by the market.
