Abstract

Developing countries around the world are projected to account for around 87 percent of the world’s primary energy demand growth by 2030. Much of this growth in energy demand will occur in Asia which is witnessing rising population, high economic growth and rapid urbanization. Many countries are averse to the notion of energy conservation and efficiency and consider it their priority to first ensure economic growth and deal with energy saving later. A well-conceived energy efficiency strategy will not only allow them to achieve their goal with much lower energy consumption but also enable them to improve the living standard and quality of life, while making human and financial resources available for other aspects of societal development such as education, healthcare, etc.
