This paper examines energy efficiency's role in boosting economic growth and reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. It examines the role of standards in delivering energy efficiency benefits, and it shows how the international convergence of standards presents an opportunity for international collaboration.

This paper presents an overview of current household energy trends in Africa, and the reasons why access to modern cooking facilities remains so low.
