Efficiency improvements offer several benefits. First, assuming that the cost of improving the efficiency of some good is less than the savings associated with reduced energy use, efficiency efforts save money, which can then be applied toward other goods, services, or development opportunities. Second, a reduction in energy consumption directly translates into a reduction of GHG emissions and other environmental pollutants, although the amount of decrease depends on the energy resource that powers the good.

1, GHG emissions from energy use are a major contributor to the average warming of the climate system and a major contributor to other emissions to air and water pollution. Reducing emissions from electricity, industry, transportation, and household use in both developed and developing countries is a critical goal for energy policymakers and planners. Increasingly, the implications of warming global temperatures are being examined across disciplines such as health, economics, and governance so that planning efforts can accommodate anticipated changes resulting from climate change.
