2021 Residential Electricity Consumption in South Africa research report

On a global basis, the residential sector consumes one fifth of the world’s energy (International Energy Agency 2018: 2) and has a large untapped potential to benefit from the multiple positive economic and social impacts of energy efficiency. These benefits include increased disposable income, poverty alleviation, improved health & well-being, improved energy security and macro-economic benefits (IEA 2015: 31–37). Improved energy efficiency means that less energy is used while maintaining the same level of service, or increasing service levels while maintaining energy use. In the residential context this is achieved by utilizing more efficient appliances and by utilizing appliances more efficiently, meaning that efficiency improvements may be affected both by investments in technical interventions and by changes in behaviour.
