Want to invest in renewables? Become energy efficient first
Higher renewable energy shares can be reached if the total industrial energy demand is lower. That is why industrial energy efficiency is a critical first step in the clean energy transition. The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) has found that improving energy efficiency by implementing best practices and new technologies is a prerequisite to achieving the SEforALL targets, including reaching renewable energy shares of up to 34 per cent by 2030.
