We live in a world that demands more from our existing resources.
At 6% annual growth, developing Asia could produce 44% of global GDP by 2035. Correspondingly, the region’s share of world energy consumption is expected to rise rapidly from a third to more than 50%.
Energy systems will be challenged to satisfy developing Asia’s economic aspirations. Therefore, it is critical to investing in energy efficiency to meet the future energy demand.
Adopting efficient energy measures is everyone’s responsibility.
Energy efficiency offers a powerful and cost-effective tool for achieving a sustainable energy future. Improvements in energy efficiency can reduce the burden in energy infrastructure, cut energy cost, increase competitiveness and improve public welfare.
Environmental benefits can also be achieved by the reduction of greenhouse gas emission and air pollution. Energy security or the uninterrupted availability of energy sources at an affordable price can also benefit from improved energy efficiency through decreasing reliance on fossil fuels.
Sharing and adopting energy-efficient practices is a joint effort.
