Abstract

Most official energy forecasts regard major energy efficiency improvements as a key means of reducing energy use and associated greenhouse gases. This paper examines past and current energy efficiency improvements in various sectors and concludes that absolute energy reductions are very difficult to achieve in a growth-oriented global economy with continued population rise.
