Energy policies

Punktem wyjścia do ich zorganizowania były wnioski z marcowego spotkania (pt. Czy pakiet KE ‘Czysta energia dla wszystkich Europejczyków’ pomoże w walce ze smogiem w Polsce?). Jego uczestnicy zauważyli, że skutecznie działający system świadectw może być narzędziem służącym poprawie efektywności energetycznej budynków. Kontynuując tą myśl chcielibyśmy w gronie ekspertów poddać ewaluacji funkcjonujące w Polsce rozwiązania i zastanowić się nad ich przyszłością.

EPATEE (Evaluation Into Practice to Achieve Targets for Energy Efficiency) is a Horizon 2020 funded project which aims to give EU Member States tools and knowledge for a better evaluation of their own energy efficiency policies.   EPATEE will raise the capacity of policymakers and implementers for policy evaluation by providing them with tools and practical knowledge to make consistent impact evaluation an integral part of the policy cycle. It will support EU Member States in distinguishing effective from ineffective policies.
