Energy savings ‘driving up consumption’, study warns

Energy savings ‘driving up consumption’, study warns

Recently, the EU has made energy efficiency a priority of its fight against climate change. One arm of its strategy is the new energy labelling scheme proposed by the EC (European Commission) in November 2008.

Scottish researchers have warned of rising consumer demand for energy resulting from increased efficiency of electrical products, calling for policies to ensure that gains or not offset by rising demand.

The case studies from Scotland and other parts of the UK show that improving energy efficiency is likely to partially, or in extreme cases wholly, offset energy savings.

Also, they find that efficiency improvements lead to higher CO2 levels, as industry seeks to benefit from lower energy prices.
