Improving energy efficiency is one of the most important energy
policies in many countries. This study mainly focused on the
economic and environmental effects of energy efficiency
improvements in Iran’s electricity sector on Iran’s economy
using a computable general equilibrium framework.
Furthermore, the potential benefits of carbon reduction were
explored. The results showed that the most significant change
occurred in the sectoral output. Other macroeconomic variables,
such as GDP and export, also showed higher levels.
Accordingly, it can be asserted that a combination of energy
policies, such as carbon pricing and revenue recycling, that are
aimed at improving energy efficiency can potentially have
positive effects on both the economy and the environment.
Therefore, energy efficiency improvements can be considered a
cost-effective alternative to promoting sustainable development.
