energy policy

This event is aiming to present and discuss EU energy efficiency policy and different ways to finance energy efficiency investments. It will present opportunities for unlocking the potential for energy efficiency in Germany, France and Austria. Best practice from projects addressing energy efficiency in the buildings, industry and sustainable transport sectors will be shared. Speakers will focus on practical experience in developing, structuring and financing energy efficiency investment programmes. The event will allow time for debate.

Global energy demand grew by 2% in 2017 after two years of low growth. An increase in energy using activities across many countries, regions and sectors outweighed ongoing progress on energy efficiency. Global energy intensity fell by 1.7% in 2017, the smallest annual improvement this decade.

The EPBD targets are tough but clear enough and it’s now up to member states to enforce these commitments. The risk of the directive being ineffective is high if countries and local authorities do not enforce it correctly.   “The EPBD was only the first step on the road to make our European building stock better,” said the Parliament’s rapporteur on the EPBD, Bendt Bendtsen, during REDay2018, passing symbolically the mantle from EU policymakers to national authorities in charge of implementing it.

Energy efficiency is the best investment in sustainable energy that has multiple benefits. Yet, its vast potential is not realised. What are the challenges – as it’s seen by the industry? How can regional and local authorities can foster such investments? What are the financial hints and tricks to make a project attractive for those who finance it? This webinar aims to discuss these questions among others and assist those considering to draft and implement ambitious local and regional EE policies and actions. Agenda:

The World Energy Council’s Energy Trilemma Index tool, produced in partnership with Oliver Wyman, ranks countries on their ability to provide sustainable energy through 3 dimensions: Energy security, Energy equity (accessibility and affordability), Environmental sustainability. The ranking measures overall performance in achieving a sustainable mix of policies and the balance score highlights how well a country manages the trade-offs of the Trilemma with "A" being the best. Use this interactive Index to assess the sustainability of national energy policies.

The EU is currently designing a new 2050 strategy for reducing its GHG emissions, which should be compatible with the Paris climate agreement. Many European cities have already engaged in the long-term planning for the mid-century mark. By developing their 2050 roadmaps, these cities are designing clear pathways to transform their societies to become resilient and resource-efficient, running entirely on clean energy sources, renovating buildings and providing social and economic wellbeing to their citizens.

This guide shows how to identify measures where energy and cost savings can be easily made with little or no cost. It is designed for use by anyone new to carbon saving (especially in smaller businesses) and recognises that not everyone has the time or resources to undertake a full carbon management programme. This guide can be used on its own or as an introduction to the many sector and technology specific publications in the Carbon Trust’s library.
