<strong>DESCRIPTION: </strong> Innovative firms are bringing new energy efficiency business models to bear that allow for innovative service and financing solutions, often enabled by emerging digital technologies At the same time, many jurisdictions are expanding their use of market based instruments to stimulate energy efficiency action, with the IEA measuring annual investment within such programmes at $26 billion. These approaches offer great potential for driving growth in efficiency by removing key barriers and making investment more attractive. They also raise many important questions of market and regulatory design, and often depend on key policy decisions to enable them. This Dialogue will engage both business innovators and policy makers to discuss what new approaches are emerging and how to allow them to flourish.
