On the Incremental Investment in Residential Energy Efficiency: A Saudi Perspective

Walid Matar ()

Discussion Papers from King Abdullah Petroleum Studies and Research Center

Abstract: It has been shown in the literature that, in aggregate, actual household energy efficiency adoption is less than would be expected economically. Energy economists and policy analysts have described this phenomenon as the ‘energy efficiency gap.’ There could be myriad reasons for this gap, such as a lack of information about energy efficiency measures, or household decisions to invest in one energy efficiency measure rendering subsequent measures less attractive. The latter is especially the case when faced with discrete efficiency measures.
