This presentation provides an overview of the TRACE model, which helps cities identify under-performing sectors, evaluate improvement and cost-saving potentials, and prioritize sectors and energy efficiency interventions.
Energy Efficiency and Demand Side Management
This e-Learning course describes a process for offering cities a quick and easy way to assess their energy efficiency and identify sectors with the most improvement potential by using the TRACE city energy efficiency diagnostic tool. This tool can be used to benchmark city energy use, prioritize sectors with significant energy savings potential, and identify appropriate energy efficiency interventions across six service areas—transport, buildings, water and waste water, public lighting, solid waste, and power and heat. Please visit the World Bank’s Open Learning Campus for more information.
This report provides a step-by-step guide on how to use the Building Efficiency Policy Assessment Tool to assess energy efficiency policy. Specifically, it reviews policy options that can accelerate those energy efficiency improvements and introduces a building efficiency policy assessment tool that provides a simple framework to help decision-makers set policy priorities through dialogue and input from key stakeholders.
