Assessing the potential for a step change in energy, water and resource efficiency, 2010-2015

Technical report

One of the central issues explored in the National Outlook project is the consequence of different outlooks for energy and water use, including a potential step change in energy and water use efficiency.

This report outlines the data and methods used to estimate implications of a continuation in current trends in energy and water intensity over the period to 2050, and the potential impact of widespread uptake of cost effective efficiency measures. Energy and water intensity refers to energy and water use (in physical units) per dollar of real value added (adjusted for inflation), for major economic sectors. The analysis focuses on non-agricultural energy and water use.
