The International Energy Agency (IEA) and Asian Development Bank, with the help of REEEP and the International Copper Association Southeast Asia, just released recommendations for policies to improve energy efficiency in South East Asia.
The IEA and member states "identified efficiency as the most rapid and cost-effective way to address energy security as well as environmental and economic challenges. To help countries improve their individual energy efficiency, in 2008 the IEA developed a set of 25 energy efficiency policy recommendations. These 25 recommendations have proven an effective way to increase awareness and obtain high-level political support for scaled-up energy efficiency efforts."
