Energy efficiency measures adopted in the 4-for-2 °C Scenario bring about a $900 billion
increase, relative to the New Policies Scenario, in cumulative investment from 2012 to 2020
(Figure 2.13). M...
ore than half of the increase is due to households purchasing more efficient
energy consuming equipment (IEA, 2012a). The increase in cumulative investment in the
service and transport sectors respectively reaches more than $160 billion and $170 billion.
Energy intensive industries are responsible for only a small share of total energy efficiency
investments, as their potential for energy savings is comparatively limited in the period to
2020. The reduction of methane emissions from upstream oil and gas requires a cumulative
investment of around $20 billion up to 2020, while power generation investment is slightly
reduced, relative to the New Policies Scenario, due to lower electricity demand, driven by
energy efficiency policies.
