Abstract

Energy efficiency is seen more often as a means of reducing energy consumption and costs than as a way to expand the production of goods and services. But it can help raise a company’s manufacturing capacity, improve the quantity and quality of a city’s water supply, and provide more heating and cooling to improve attendance and learning in schools - all while keeping energy costs down. It is important to recognize such benefits of energy efficiency for low- and middle-income countries - and to factor them into economic assessments of projects and programs.
