The themes for the WCTS 2012 will include but not limited to the following:
Energy Efficiency in production sectors - Rapid industrialization among developing countries and those with economies in transition is anticipated to accelerate the increase in future global energy demand. In this context, decoupling economic growth from energy growth is critical for the achievement of sustainable economic development.
Energy efficiency is the key factor in reducing energy intensity – a goal of reducing global energy intensity by 40 percent by 2030 has been set by the UN Sustainable Energy for All initiative.
Increased energy efficiency produces benefits at the government, industrial and consumer levels. The deployment of existing energy efficiency technologies is a near-term, cost-efficient option for achieving enhanced competitiveness, as well as addressing global energy needs. Energy efficiency is the cleanest and the most readily available solution to meet the global energy demand, accounting for one third of the total low-cost opportunities to reduce GHG emissions globally based on available technologies. Energy efficiency can also create jobs in the manufacturing, services and related sectors. This theme will focus on the opportunities and challenges of scaling up energy efficiency. Back to themes
