European Energy Network

This study analyses and compares public budgets across the EU to support energy efficiency in buildings. The research looks at the size of the public investment, the type of energy efficient measures supported (fiscal v. financial, short-term v. long-term) and the amount of private investment generated.

The results of the study show that data for these programmes is often insufficient and that publicly supported fiscal and financial incentives in Member States boost investment in the private sector.

The European Energy Network recently launched this study at a workshop held in the European Parliament to stress the importance of continued and increased financing of energy efficiency in buildings.

The study is in French, but a brochure summarising the main findings has been produced in English.
