THE WORLD'S FIRST FUEL
How energy efficiency is reshaping global energy systems
Major global economies, including China, Germany, India, Japan and the United States, are making huge strides to improve their energy efficiency and adjust when they use energy. International reports released in the past year, such as the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy's (ACEEE) 2018 International Energy Efficiency Scorecard, have shown that Australia currently ranks worst out of developed countries when it comes to energy policy and performance.
The EEC’s latest flagship report, The World’s First Fuel: How energy efficiency is reshaping global energy systems, examines the energy efficiency policies that these global leaders have introduced, and what the key lessons are for Australia. The report is informed by extensive research and interviews with global experts from the US, Europe and Asia, and is aimed at senior decision makers.
The report is not intended as an exhaustive review of international practice. Instead it highlights a number of policies and programs that Australia should adopt to ensure that our energy system is affordable, reliable and sustainable.
