  • Energy efficiency: what are we waiting for?

    There is something odd about energy efficiency Many studies have shown that there is big potential for energy efficiency improvement, and it is widely acknowledged that energy efficiency improvement is the number one option to tackle climate change and improve the security of our energy supply. Energy efficiency also saves us money: in two ways....
