Mr Tanaka (Executive Director of the International Energy Agency (IEA)) said at the Clean Energy Technologies Symposium on 2nd November 2010: “I am very pleased to be launching in Singapore today, the second of the IEA’s new ”Policy Pathway” series, Energy Performance Certification of Buildings. “Governments are missing a great opportunity to save energy in buildings. Energy efficiency can save energy and cut CO2 emissions at very little or no cost, but there remains a lot to be done if governments and industry are to capture these savings.

Presenting the new series today in Paris, IEA Executive Director Nobuo Tanaka said, “Governments are missing a great opportunity to save energy. Even the countries that are most proactive on energy efficiency have implemented less than 60% of the IEA energy efficiency recommendations! This shows that although clearly energy efficiency can save energy and CO2 emissions at very little or no cost, barriers remain for governments to put effective policies in place. The Policy Pathway series should help countries overcome these barriers”.
