Abstract: In this paper we investigate the main barriers to energy efficiency in Singapore industries. We first build a theoretical framework based on the motivation, opportunity, and ability theory, and we extend it by including the ability to monitor energy efficiency outcomes as an exogenous moderator. Based on survey data we then compute the structural model using a partial least square method. The results show that the wish to cut operating costs and firm?s know-how to implement energy efficiency have both a positive, statistically significant impact on energy efficiency outcomes. Know-how itself is driven by firm?s know-what, which reflects the awareness and the fundamental understanding of energy efficiency. Interestingly, the ability to monitor energy efficiency outcomes moderates the impact of cost-driven motivation. Eventually, we discuss the consequences of theses results on energy policy.
