About industry


IEA analysis shows that substantial opportunities to improve industrial energy efficiency exist. Overall potential energy savings in the industrial sector in 2010 amount to at least 26 EJ per year by 2030, or the current annual electricity consumption of the United States and China combined. 

 Much of this potential can be captured through policies for promoting use and optimisation of energy-efficient industrial equipment and systems, and improving overall efficiency through energy management.
