This book deals with a gamut of issues related to energy efficiency, development and environment with a view to provide a systematic framework for the efficient utilization of energy. While analysing the barriers and drivers for energy-efficiency investments, it focuses on mobilization of private capital and the commercialization of energy-efficiency technologies. It also links the issue with the climate debate in terms of its causes, outcomes, policy initiatives, mitigation and adaptation methodologies.

Energy Efficiency and Climate Change: Conserving Power for a Sustainable Future discusses the development of policy instruments to promote energy-efficiency investments that can bridge the gap between energy efficiency potential and practice. It directly addresses the 'Energy Efficiency Gap' that every country has faced in the form of opposition to energy reform policies. A discussion on implications of international laws on climate change is followed by proposing the commercialization of energy-efficient technologies, with special focus on the role of multilateral institutions in promoting the adoption of energy-efficiency measures.

This book will be an important resource for academics working in the fields of economic and development studies and environment studies and also for policy makers and industrialists.
