Energy efficiency has attracted the attention of many governments around the world due to the urgent call to reduce investments in energy infrastructure, lower fossil fuel dependency, integrate renewable energies, improve consumer welfare and reduce CO 2 emissions. The conservative and smart use of energy is one of the main approaches to improve energy efficiency. However, the management of energy at the national level is a complex decision making problem involving uncertainty and therefore, Bayesian Networks are suitable paradigm to deal with this task. In this work, we present a progress report on the development of a decision making method, based on Bayesian decision networks, for the efficient use of energy as a function of the cost, efficiency and CO 2 emissions from the source of energy used.
