Emerging policies and actions aim to increase the efficiency of energy production and consumption, and to promote a transition to low or zero-carbon energy sources. These policies, which are clearly relevant to climate change, entail synergies (and trade-offs) between often overlapping mitigation and adaptation strategies. While the introduction of renewable sources of energy is considered more of a climate change mitigation measure, energy efficiency can also be seen as an adaptation measure since it contributes to the reduction of energy demand and energy consumption. Reduced energy consumption can also be observed through the indicator of lower energy intensity.
