Authors : Riyadh Moussaoui .

Abstract

The aim of this paper is to highlight the importance of energy efficiency in the residential sector in the Middle East and North Africa, especially as this sector is one of the largest sectors in energy consumption. It has been shown that energy efficiency is weak in many countries of the region compared to developed countries. Although most of them adopt programs and objectives of improving energy efficiency in the residential sector, their potential to save energy from these programs is greater than the results achieved. To achieve this success, it must adopt an integrated and coherent package of programs, policies and mechanisms to improve energy efficiency, guarantee its success by providing a strong legislative and institutional environment, provide the necessary funding, benefit from the experiences of the leading countries, and the gradual reform of energy subsidies, To achieve the desired goal, without neglecting the side of building consumer awareness of the need to provide energy to ensure the right of future generations.
