Energy efficiency is not effective in most of the case because of one simply reason: the construction and the usage is not correspondent to the design initial prevision. I think governments has only two main tools to revert this bad habit among construction and final users: fines and incentives. We should give fines to check the final construction details of a building and emit fines for those who don't follow the design guidelines, and give bonuses to the well built designs and the inhabitants who show a best practice usage of them.
