Perspectives on the multiple benefits of energy efficiency for ASEAN



Most energy efficiency policies are justified on the basis of energy savings, together with contributions to energy security and climate change mitigation. However, improved energy efficiency also delivers additional, non-energy benefits for individuals, the broader economy, and society. We call this the "multiple benefits" of energy efficiency. These benefits include various macroeconomic benefits (e.g. shifts in energy trade balances and employment), increased access to energy, and affordability of energy services, reduced air pollution, and fiscal improvements for national and sub-national entities.

Come join us to discuss the many benefits that energy efficiency can deliver to households, businesses, and to the energy system.

The webinar is organised by the ASEAN Centre for Energy and the International Energy Agency, and will be presented by Emily McQualter and Edith Bayer, Energy Efficiency Division at the International Energy Agency and Rio Jon Piter Silitonga from the ASEAN Centre for Energy.
