Infographic: How to accelerate energy efficiency by getting the financing for it right

17 November 2016 | News

View our infographic on how to accelerate energy efficiency by getting the financing for it right

Energy Efficiency Financing

Improving energy efficiency can provide the biggest contribution to limiting global warming to no more than 2°C:

  • Energy efficiency can account of 38% of cumulative emissions reductions to 2050 under current scenarios
  • The transition to renewable electricity may only account for 32% of cumulative reductions over the same period


There is a big gap between what is needed and what is being done

  • In 2015 $221 billion was invested globally in improving energy efficiency
  • By the 2030s, investment needs to reach at least $550 billion a year to stay on course for limiting climate change to no more than 2 degrees
