Infographic: Stimulating demand for industrial energy efficiency

What does a thriving industrial energy efficiency market look like?

UNIDO recently gathered its leading global experts in the field to provide insights on what they have learned in more than a decade of igniting demand for industrial energy efficiency in emerging economies. Together they defined the key ‘ingredients’ that go into fostering a thriving industrial energy efficiency market. These insights have been captured in an infographic (download infographic below).

In the past, international development projects have been criticised for fragmented and uncoordinated initiatives. Learning from these experiences, UNIDO understood that stimulating market-wide demand for industrial energy efficiency would require a systemic effort across various sectors. 

Starting with a diagnostic assessment, UNIDO then works with national stakeholders to form a systematic programme architecture dedicated to stimulating market demand for industrial energy efficiency services and technology. There are six solutions which are central to UNIDO’s thriving industrial energy efficiency market methodology: 1) Policies and Strategies, 2) Regulations and Standards, 3) Institutional Support, 4) Technologies and Services, 5) Access to Finance, 6) Advocacy and Awareness.
