Energy Efficiency: Towards the End of Demand Growth is a detailed guide to new energy efficiency technologies and policy frameworks affecting the profitability of efficiency projects. The contributions drawn together by F.P. Sioshansi feature insights from recognized thought leaders, detailed examinations of evolving technologies, and practical case studies yielding best practices for project planners, implementers and financiers. This volume challenges the "more is better" paradigm in energy production, examining efficiency technologies and measurement across the supply chain.
- Comparative financial analysis of efficiency vs. increased generation
- Case studies from four continents highlight the examples of successful technologies and projects
- Explains how existing and developing regulatory frameworks impact cost and implementation
"I can recommend this book as a useful reference for the state-of-the-art analysis of energy efficiency at the beginning of the second decade of the XXI century. Dr. Sioshansi and the other authors were able to encompass most thematic areas related to energy efficiency and show their complex interplay."--Energy Technology, 2014, 2 "Another timely book from prolific energy author and editor Fereidoon Sioshansi, this time exploring the global surge of electricity market reform…this title will interest many disparate groups, from students to investors, regulators, power utilities, renewables developers and policy makers."--Real Power, Autumn 2013 "…‘Energy Efficiency’ explores the alternative path to continually increasing energy supply – an end to demand growth. The book looks at the alternative technologies that will help drive energy efficiency and discusses the policies that must be put in place to influence demand growth and to help select and deploy the most suitable solutions."--Real Power, Summer 2013 "Specialists in the technology, economics, and politics of energy describe why and how people can influence the future of electricity demand growth globally, based on what is feasible and often cost effective."--Reference & Research Book News, October 2013
