One response to “Hot topic: Does energy efficiency lead to increased energy consumption?”

    A very interesting article. And an interesting comment that rebound is often stronger in developing countries. We were asked to make some estimates of wood savings from an improved wood stove program. The efficiency of the stove was measured using water boiling tests, however when the household were surveyed for actual wood usage, it was much more than expected. Hence the savings were less than theoretically expected.
