ENERGY EFFICIENCY AND CONSERVATION IN THE DEVELOPING WORLD. THE WORLD BANK'S ROLE

The demand for energy is growing rapidly in developing countries. But energy is produced and consumed with varying low levels of efficiency. In the early 1980s, the World Bank began to promote new kinds of projects with physical components and policy initiatives that specifically targeted energy efficiency and conservation and economically justified fuel switching. In formulating integrated energy strategies, governments must review both supply- and demand-side options and set priorities that address major impediments to improving the efficiency with which energy is produced and consumed.
