Study evaluating the current energy efficiency policy framework in the EU and providing orientation on policy options for realising the cost-effective energyefficiency/saving potential until 2020 and beyond / Wolfgang Eichhammer, et al. European Commission. DG Energy, September 2014, 204 p.
Executive summary :
The analysis of this study has two main objectives: (i) to report on the evaluation of the achievement of the 2020 energy efficiency target of 20%; (ii) to discuss energy efficiency potentials in two different time horizons (2020, 2030) mainly in view of a 2030 target frame for energy efficiency. For this purpose we carried out the following tasks:
• Assessment of the effectiveness of a target selection of national measures and policies up to 2020 (Bottom-up policy analysis of Art. 3 of the EED).
• Decomposition analysis of past energy efficiency achievements (2000-2012 and 2008-12) based on Eurostat data and projection to 2020
• Bottom-up modelling analysis of policies up to 2020 based on national and EU policies
• Bottom-up modelling of energy efficiency potentials up to 2030
