All systems go for energy efficiency

In a recent report by the International Energy Agency (IEA) energy efficiency has been identified as one of the key ways the world can respond to the growing energy crisis. They hail energy efficiency as a 'hidden fuel' which has been greatly underestimated as a solution to the world's energy shortfall. Indeed, the executive director of the IEA, Maria van der Hoeven, has stated that governments need to invest more in promoting energy efficiency policies. Far from acting as a brake on global economic growth energy efficiency can help to boost sustainable growth whilst improving lives of its citizens and achieving security of supply. The IEA stated that governments need to decide which type of energy efficient programmes are suitable for their particular country by analysing potential areas for change.

One example of how different countries might follow different paths is the recent installation of the first floating solar power project in the UK which has been envisaged as one way our country can develop solar power without using up valuable agricultural land to house solar panels. By contrast Spain has been able to site its solar power plants on land as it benefits from having a larger area of land available. 

Even the U.N. have recently stated that by developing and promoting the use of more efficient equipment a worldwide saving of $ 350 billion could be made every year.
