Boosting energy efficiency is critical for addressing climate change. The energy sector is estimated to account for more than two-thirds of total greenhouse gas emissions globally and improving energy efficiency could contribute up to 40% towards reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. Are the World Bank and its partners fully realizing the immense potential of energy efficiency advancements? What factors are slowing down the scaling up of impactful energy efficiency interventions?

In this episode, Marialisa Motta and Ramachandra Jammi join host Jeff Chelsky to unpack lessons from IEG’s evaluation on World Bank Group Support to Demand-Side Energy Efficiency. Marialisa is manager of IEG’s Finance Private Sector Infrastructure and Sustainable Development Evaluation Unit and Rama is Senior Evaluation Officer in IEG and is the lead of IEG’s energy efficiency evaluation.
