The State of Global Energy Efficiency report is published by ABB and produced by Enerdata. This report provides an insightful and exhaustive analysis on the global and sectorial energy efficiency trends, the energy efficiency performance in power generation (global, thermal and power grid efficiency) as well as an Industry focus by sector (global, steel, chemical, cement, paper, aluminum industry).

The Global Energy Efficiency trends 2013, leveraging the most recent available historical data series (2011) details the significant progress that has been recorded in terms of energy efficiency over the last 20 years.

For instance, at world level, the energy required per unit of GDP (the energy intensity) has been decreasing by 1.3 percent per year since 1990. Improvements have been achieved in all regions, with the largest reductions in the regions with the highest energy intensities (China, CIS and India).
