IEA Reports on Energy efficiency finance and Climate change
The IEA has published two new reports.
The first, "Plugging the Energy Efficiency Gap with Climate Finance", focuses primarily on public climate finance flows from "north" to "south", probing the current use of funds from multi-lateral development banks, bi-lateral financial insitutions and carnon markets for energy efficiency projects and the design of the future climate financial mechanisms such as the Green Climate Fund to encourage energy efficiency improvements in developing countries.
The report is available here.
The second report, titled "Mobilising investment in energy efficiency", examines the use and funding of economic instruments by governments to support energy efficiency measures, particularly in the buildings sector.
