Energy Rebound as a Potential Threat to a Low-Carbon Future: Findings from a New Exergy-Based National-Level Rebound Approach
Improvements in China’s energy efficiency may be associated with increased energy consumption, a new study has found. The study used an exergy-based approach to estimate the rebound effect at the national level. The analysis showed that in China, improvements in energy efficiency may be associated with increased levels of energy consumption overall – so-called “backfire”. …
The pace of governed energy transitions: Agency, international dynamics and the global Paris agreement accelerating decarbonisation processes
So what if there were a larger and more sustained energy efficiency effort across the economy, what would be the impact
So which households can benefit from energy efficiency and is there an argument to fund from the public purse?
