ENERGY PRODUCTIVITY PLAYBOOK Roadmaps for an Energy Productive Future
Alliance to Save Energy
This document is a tool designed to help organizations and policymakers around the world craft their own Roadmaps—published documents that detail the economic, jobs, environmental and security benefits of doubling energy productivity—that clearly articulate a target date for doubling energy productivity and detail achievable policy recommendations necessary to achieving the goal. Clean energy markets around the world are undergoing a revolution as countries, companies and citizens seek paths to a prosperous economic future that also protect the environment. The December 2015 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) negotiations in Paris added urgency to the call for global leaders to find real solutions to the challenges posed by climate change. Achieving the needed reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to achieve the goals set by the negotiators at the 21st Conference of Parties (COP21) will require public and private sector leaders to re-examine every aspect of global energy use—from how we produce energy to how we manage its consumption.
