IPEEC-G20 report: Advancing energy efficiency in G20 economies

Share this Post:

A report from the International Partnership for Energy Efficiency Cooperation (IPEEC) to the G20 Energy Transitions Working Group (ETWG).

Under the motto “Building consensus for fair and sustainable development”, Argentina’s G20 Presidency will address three new themes: the future of work; infrastructure for development, with enhanced engagement with private sector to reduce the infrastructure deficit; and sustainable food future by improving soils and increasing productivity. G20 economies, through the Energy Transitions Working Group (ETWG), are working together to ensure their respective energy transitions towards cleaner, more flexible and transparent systems. In this context, energy efficiency represents an essential pillar to the G20’s efforts in facilitating these transitions, in particular in securing a more sustainable energy future in a cost-effective manner.


The Advancing energy efficiency in the G20 economies report, released by IPEEC and the G20 Presidency in June 2018, presents a comprehensive picture of the work realised under the EELP. The report highlights the most recent and impactful activities of the Task Groups coordinated by IPEEC. It also provides an implementation update for all nine Task Groups containing hard evidence of successful activities and programmes. The report additionally outlines the potential for new collaborative efforts focusing on behaviour change and energy efficiency, which would further improve the scope of the EELP and enhance Task Groups’ work.
