Climate change has influenced many sectors whereas energy sector is a crucial aspectuniquely interrelated with it. Recently, the rising global awareness about climate changeand how it can affect the world has influenced the way people use and produce energy.Nevertheless, reducing the use of energy as a practical way of reducing green housegases (GHG) is not as simple as one might expect. Energy might be the main source ofGHG emission. But on the other hand, as illustrated by UNEP in Global Outlook Report2006, energy is also the main fuel of world development.This article aims to review attempts to search best ways of reducing GHG emission tomitigate the effect of climate change from energy sector. Increasing energy efficiency andusing technology to provide “clean” energy are two among those attempts. Despite thegood intention of those attempts, their applications have not yet showed the expectedresult of a significant reduction in GHG emission. These efforts are often restrained intheir implementation by a number of factors, where economic considerations come as themost dominant factors.A continuous effort of developing technologies that support energy efficiency and cleanenergy provision is a crucial need. Along with it, there should also be a major reform inchanging the way people behave toward energy itself.Keywords: GHG emission, energy efficiency, alternative sources of energy
