Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper is to present the barriers to energy-efficient investments (EEIs) and give reasons to their existence in the marketplace. Furthermore, this paper sets out to investigate what barriers to energy-efficient investments are present for Pilkington Floatglas AB, a firm operating in the glassmaking industry in Halmstad, Sweden. Findings suggest that five barriers act as hinders to energy-efficient investments for Pilkington, where the two most influential barriers are technological uncertainty and economic uncertainty.
