Executive Summary of a report by Eamonn Boland and Sébastien Duquesnoy of Imperial College London Energy Futures Lab.
In an era where businesses are facing increasing energy costs, tightening company budgets and the threat of increased carbon emission related expenditure, companies are constantly looking for low risk, cost-effective ways to decrease their operational costs towards improving their financial performance. With the threat of increasing energy costs in particular, such an opportunity that is gaining increased traction amongst companies and policy makers alike is investments in energy efficiency projects.
This report investigates the existence of an “Energy Efficiency Gap”, the term used to describe the apparent anomaly in the sub-optimal diffusion of energy efficiency project investments.
