The residential sector represents one of the largest components of Total Final Energy Consumption, accounting for 30 to 40% of the total. Various IEA and World Bank estimates point to potential savings in the WB6 of up to 10-35% for households. In monetary terms, public buildings and households alone could yield savings valued at €805 million by 2020 according to the Energy Community, and yet the countries with the most opportunities to save, such as Bosnia and Herzegovina, with an energy intensity of 522Kgoe/1,000€, struggle to reproduce the best practice examples coming from more advanced neighbours such as Croatia -the newest EU member state as of 2013- with an energy intensity of 198Kgoe/1,000€.
This session, which is organised by the DG NEAR and will take place on Tuesday 20 June (14.00 - 15.30) in the context of the EUSEW 2017 Policy Conference, will bring together those experts and financiers who have demonstrated good practice and delivered energy efficiency buildings in the region and compare that to other centres where the challenges are great but as yet unresolved, to try and identify the policy black holes and stellar successes.
