This report summarises the presentations and discussions of the workshop on “National Strategies for Renewables: Energy Efficiency, Building Renovation and Self-Consumption”, which was held on 22nd February 2018. National strategies for the development of renewable energy were discussed in relation to energy efficiency targets and other policies, including building renovation and self-generation of electricity. The current situation and its likely evolution were presented and evaluated, with possible policy initiatives identified to effectively address the challenges. The workshop concluded that ambitious targets for renewable energy and energy efficiency are feasible and pointed to important synergies between both policies, in particular in the building and transport sectors.

Boosting Building Renovation: What Potential and Value for Europe?

14-10-2016

Renovation of buildings is key to meet the EU’s energy efficiency targets. This paper reviews the literature on the state of the building stock and assesses various policy options and their potential for boosting the energy efficient renovation of buildings in Europe. This document has been commissioned by Policy Department A at the request of the Committee on Industry, Research and Energy (ITRE) of the European Parliament.

Understanding energy efficiency

01-10-2015

The European Commission considers energy efficiency as a strategic priority for the Energy Union, and promotes 'energy efficiency first' as a principle. It proposes to rethink energy efficiency fundamentally, and treat it as an energy source in its own right. By using energy more efficiently, energy demand can be reduced, leading to lower energy bills for consumers, lower emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants, reduced need for energy infrastructure, and increased energy security through ...

The European Commission considers energy efficiency as a strategic priority for the Energy Union, and promotes 'energy efficiency first' as a principle. It proposes to rethink energy efficiency fundamentally, and treat it as an energy source in its own right. By using energy more efficiently, energy demand can be reduced, leading to lower energy bills for consumers, lower emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants, reduced need for energy infrastructure, and increased energy security through a reduction of imports. Worldwide, energy efficiency has contributed to substantial savings in energy consumption. The implementation of energy efficiency policies is challenging, and the full potential of energy efficiency is far from realised, for financial, behavioural and regulatory reasons. Obstacles include high upfront investment costs, access to finance, lack of information, split incentives and rebound effects. The EU has set energy efficiency targets and a set of regulations to promote energy efficiency across the economy. As part of the Energy Union strategy, the European Commission plans to propose specific strategies for heating and cooling, and for the transport sector. Key pieces of energy efficiency legislation are to be reviewed in the coming two years, and implementation of the existing framework enforced. Finance for energy efficiency will be given special attention. The European Parliament has repeatedly called for stronger EU energy efficiency targets and policies, and is current preparing own-initiative reports on the Energy Efficiency Directive and the Energy Union strategy.
