Supporting energy efficiency progress in major economies

Share this Post:

IPEEC is an autonomous partnership of nations founded in 2009 by the Group of Eight (G8) to promote collaboration on energy efficiency. Its membership now includes 17 of the Group of 20 (G20) economies, which represent over 80% of global energy use and over 80% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions (OECD, 2015).

IPEEC is the lead coordinating organisation for the G20 Energy Efficiency Leading Programme.


Energy efficiency has the potential to contribute significally towards the emissions reductions required to realise an energy sector transition that is compatible with climate goals. The selected figures in the report illustrate measures that can be undertaken in addition to countries’ National Determined Contributions under the Paris Agreement in order to achieve a peak in energy-related GHG emissions in the near-term. They are modelled in the IEA’s “Bridge Scenario“, which lays out a practicable course of short-term action drawing only on known technologies and policy measures which have been tried and tested and can be implemented without adversely affecting economic growth.
