Thus far, the attention in this book was directed to stimulating the adoption of commercially available technologies. Such options may prove sufficient to reach short and medium term targets. Reaching longer term targets, like those for a period of 50 to 100 years ahead requires not only the further adoption of the technologies mentioned, but also the development and adoption of innovative technologies. Blok et al. (1996a), De Beer (1998) and Martin et al. (2000) have shown that the long-term potential for energy-efficiency improvements in various energy-intensive manufacturing industries is considerable.
