A new report from the World Economic Forum and PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), backed by 120 CEO's of global firms, has presented a wide selection of energy efficiency measures that are “doable today, at attractive returns with no need for new technology”.
The report asserts that these near-term measures could save up to $2 trillion a year worldwide while slashing harmful greenhouse gas emissions. These actions involve insulation, electrification, AI-based optimization of factory production, “industrial clustering” (when a group of related companies in a defined geographical area support each other, potentially sharing clean energy), and more. "It is crucial we address energy demand alongside supply, reducing the energy intensity of current activity and increasing the energy efficiency of future growth," said PwC Global Chair Bob Moritz.
