In IEA Member countries, electrical appliances are the fastest growing energy users, after automobiles.  Cost-effective technology exists that could improve the energy efficiency of appliances by more than one- third in ten years. Through application of such technology, the greenhouse gases emitted as a result of the use of appliances in IEA Member countries alone could be slashed by the equivalent of 322 million tonnes of CO2  per year by 2010.

This book assesses the potential energy savings and carbon reductions to be achieved through technical improvements to appliances.  It analyses the policy options available to stimulate greater manufacture and use of more efficient appliances. It suggests ways to strengthen existing appliance- efficiency programmes, and it demonstrates how international collaboration can enhance those programmes.
