This publication shows policymakers how in-depth indicators can be used to track the progress in energy efficiency technology deployment and identify new opportunities. It also answers the following questions: What are the latest trends in global energy use and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions? How do factors such as demography, economic structure, income, lifestyle and climate affect these trends? Where are the greatest potentials to further improve energy efficiency, and which data are required to support energy efficiency policy development?
