I welcome today’s publication of the first International Energy Efficiency Scorecard by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy.

Energy efficiency sits at the heart of our policies to encourage low-carbon growth, and I am therefore particularly pleased that the UK is ranked first of the twelve economies considered by the study. Making our buildings and industries more energy efficient is a significant challenge, one that will take years to meet; doing so cost effectively will mean drawing on the experiences of others. This study, and others like it, will make a valuable contribution to our understanding not just of the problems, but also the solutions. It is a fascinating collection of best practice, setting out the innovations which can accelerate economic growth, enhance energy security - and save our households and businesses money.
