Abstract

This report is based on a small scale, Department of Energy and Climate Change commissioned, research project to better understand the barriers and drivers to energy efficiency faced by individual firms, particularly small and medium sized enterprises. This report is based on both qualitative and quantitative research and focuses on late stage barriers (where firms already have information on the type, costs and savings of the energy efficiency measures available to them). The research illustrates the wide range of motivations and barriers cited by businesses but shows there are no simple explanations for businesses behavior around take up of energy efficiency.
