Altman et al. highlight major developments and influences on energy efficiency in four sectors of the South African economy. The paper also reviews measures for a package of tools that government could use to stimulate energy efficiency in these sectors. These incentive tools could encourage alternative energy investments and promote investment in physical or process technologies that could assist firms in saving energy. The report starts by reflecting on present and future energy efficiency in four major economic sectors – manufacturing, agriculture, mining and commerce. This includes a discussion of candidate technologies and barriers to energy efficiency. It then reviews local incentives and tax concessions to promote energy efficiency, as well as incentive schemes in overseas jurisdictions. The report concludes with a summary view of the efficacy and likely uptake of the proposed incentives.
