America’s Energy Future: Technology and Transformation - Summary Edition
information about the costs and benefits of available energy efficiency technologies. Most consumers are unwilling or ill equipped to do so (see Box 2.2).
Overcoming these barriers will require a judicious mix of policies, regulations, and market incentives. A full analysis of the barriers, as well as of the means to overcome them, is beyond the scope of this AEF Phase I study. The National Academies will address many of these issues, however, in the project’s Phase II.
