Deloitte, Energy on demand: the future of GCC energy efficiency, 2011
This fourth whitepaper od Deloitte tackles the topic of 'Energy Efficiency', which revolves around reducing energy waste: this can be both on the demand side through power demand management and on the supply side using a host of technologies to improve efficiency in power generation and distribution. So how do the GCC countries stand in relation to these perspectives? Are there potential gains from using or producing energy more efficiently?

Regional Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (RCREE)
RCREEE has ten founding members, including Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine, Syria, Tunisia, and Yemen. During the start-up phase, RCREEE is sponsored by Egypt, also serving as host country for the Centre, as well as Germany, the EU and Denmark (the development partners). RCREEE works closely with the Arab League.
RCREEE is doing significant work in the areas of policy and regulation. It is working to develop SWH certification and standardization, model land use agreements, national energy efficiency plans and other areas of critical importance to the sector. They have also developed an Arabia RE strategy, Arab Energy Efficiency Guideline and Arabia vision for solar electricity generation.
