Politicians are forgetting a key cog in energy policy

Energy efficiency standards might not make for exciting headlines, but a recent IEA report highlights how vital they are in promoting emissions abatement.

You have to read a different document to understand why paragraph 18 of the G20 communique is important. This is the paragraph that talks up an “action plan for voluntary collaboration on energy efficiency”.

It sits right above the one that supports “strong and effective action to address climate change”.

Go to the world energy outlook commentary released by the International Energy Agency as G20 leaders were travelling towards Brisbane last week.
