Example text

In terms of programme types, five of the case studies provided financial incentives; four case studies used information transfer. Two case studies were utility-based energy efficiency programs, and two case studies included voluntary agreements. Only one case study used a regulatory measure to achieve energy efficiency improvements (the Netherlands appliance labelling programme). With only one regulatory-based programme in the eight case studies, this cannot be taken as a representative sample since regulatory measures are the most common policy measure taken worldwide.

In particular, this publication recommends several new priority areas for action beyond those 25 policies provided to G8 leaders in 2008 (OECD/IEA, 2008b). The relevant sections of this publication reference both those included in the original 25 and additional recommendations supported by the latest analysis. • Chapter 2 examines the need for policies to promote energy efficiency, and what results have been achieved by the range of measures which have previously been adopted by governments. • Chapter 3 provides an in-depth review of progress with energy efficient appliance policy implementation in a range of IEA countries, including Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, South Korea and the United States, as well as in the EU, and the major emerging economies including Brazil, China, India, Mexico and South Africa.
