Energy efficiency is a concept that affects all systems that produce, transmit, store or consume energy and it has been called as one of the world’s greatest future ‘sources’ of energy. The EEP S&EA has published an In-Depth Study on Energy Efficiency. This report highlights energy efficiency issues relating to different technologies applied in the projects supported by EEP. A closer look will be taken at four specific areas within the EEP S&EA portfolio, which are significantly impacted by energy efficiency: clean cookstoves, lighting technology, building sector and solar PV projects. The Energy Efficiency In-Depth Study is the first in a series of In-Depth studies that will be published by EEP S&EA.

The Energy Efficiency In-Depth Study is supported by a number of separate Technical Briefs presenting a broad overview of energy efficiency principles which affect the key areas of energy systems within the portfolio. These technical briefs provide introductions to some of the key concepts relating to energy efficiency in the EEP projects, and enhance the understanding of the energy efficiency’s technical background. The first brief addresses the different aspects of energy efficiency on a more general level and the second one highlights the importance of technology choices and practical considerations for improving the total efficiency of solar PV systems.
