Energy Savings Potential
The main purpose of this project is to analyse and quantitatively assess in depth the remaining cost-effective energy-saving potential, and energy saving options across sectors, for the EU as a whole and at Member State level, and to identify how to best address them in consideration of the EU energy and climate policy targets for 2030, with elements up to 2040 and 2050.
The general objective is therefore that of providing technical information to national policy makers and to the European Commission, to better orient the decision-making in identifying the energy-efficiency measures which could achieve the highest savings cost-effectively and are most adapted to the national circumstances.
The project includes the following tasks:
- Quantitative assessment of the energy savings potentials across sectors at national (EU28) and EU level (with elements up to 2050);
- Provision of recommendations for policies and measures to implement at national and EU-level to address and exploit the untapped energy savings potential, in consideration of the existing programmes and policies already in place or planned for 2020 and 2030 and of the 2030 energy efficiency targets.
