Abstract:A large potential for energy efficiency exists in industry but the adoption of energy efficiency measures is often inhibited by various barriers. Different means to overcome these barriers and promote energy efficiency in industry exist, one of the most promising being energy services. Earlier research shows that while many barriers could be overcome by energy services, the industry’s ranking and adoption of energy services are very low. By applying an interdisciplinary approach using barrier theory, socio-technical regimes, and IPSE (Integrated Product Service Engineering) to energy services in industry, the aim of this paper is to i) theoretically explain why there is a considerable discrepancy between the potential for energy services in industry and their adoption, and ii), partly based on i) and by applying an interdisciplinary approach, attempt to explore ways of reaching a satisfactory level of energy services in industry.
