Rajendra, you raise an important point, with which I fully agree. Energy efficiency or demand side management (DSM) covers both the reduction of energy (MWh) and peak loads (MW). The latter is perhaps more relevant in many of our client developing countries with fast-rising demands, which face huge deficits in their generation supply capacity, resulting in chronic blackouts and brownouts. In our Sustainable Energy for All Global Tracking Framework, the energy efficiency indicator used is energy intensity (toe/GDP). Turning to the more specific issue of Bank Group projects to enhance energy efficiency, we use indicators that often include both MW and MWh reduction.
