Accelerating and scaling up private investment in energy efficiency is crucial to exploit the potential of energy efficiency. However many barriers remain to private investment such as access to capital, uncertainty of future energy prices, transaction costs, perceived higher risk, and lack of knowledge. As part of the IEA 25 Energy Efficiency Policy Recommendations, the IEA recommends that governments support private investment in energy efficiency.

While carbon dioxide emissions in non-Annex I countries continued to grow in 2009 (+3.3%), emissions of Annex I countries fell sharply (-6.5%), according to a new publication from the International Energy Agency. Most of the reduction, however, comes from a decrease in the energy consumption due to the 2008-2009 economic crisis.
