Energy Efficiency First – from a policy win to sound plans

543 776 Almut Bonhage
EE1st in draft NECPs

With the Energy Union Governance, Member States are required to use a common analytical basis to set their energy targets and measures, and present everything in one single document – the integrated national energy and climate plan (NECP). In this process, they shall take into account the interlinkages between the five dimensions of the Energy Union, in particular the energy efficiency first principle.

This principle is further defined: Member States shall consider alternative cost-efficient energy efficiency measures which would allow achieving the objectives of the concerned energy planning, policy and investment decisions/measures by replacing them in whole or in part.

This paper further elaborates on the history and the benefits of this approach. It also presents a review of 10 draft NECPs submitted by Member States to the Commission (see list in Annex I), with the aim to assess how the energy efficiency first principle was taken into account.

Energy Efficiency Directive Art 7: Assessment of national progress (2018)

536 677 marion santini
Art 7 energy savings

Article 7 of the Energy Efficiency Directive requires Member States to put in place energy efficiency measures to deliver annual end-use energy savings worth 1.5% of energy sales starting in 2014.

This report looks at the total savings reported by Member States in 2016, 2017 and 2018 for the years 2014, 2015 and 2016 and compares those to the notified Article 7 savings targets.

Energy Atlas 2018: Figures and Facts about Renewables in Europe

633 893 marion santini

Heinrich Boell Foundation in cooperation with the Green European Foundation, European Renewable Energies Federation and Le Monde Diplomatique publishes the European Energy Atlas 2018.

EU Member States are discussing their energy and climate strategy until 2030. Are these measures currently being negotiated in Europe enough?

The European Energy Atlas provides a compass on the different energy discussions in different Member States but also reveals how a Europeanization of the energy transition will be the more efficient and cost-effective option for all Europeans.

Stefan Scheuer and Marion Santini contributed to the chapter on energy efficiency. Learn more about the project here.

Destination Paris: Why the EU’s climate policy will derail without energy efficiency

The Paris Climate Agreement’s entry into force has clearly not yet spurred policymakers to charge toward the goal of limiting climate change to “well below 2°C” and targeting 1.5°C, warn Dr. Jan Rosenow and Stefan Scheuer. Energy efficiency remains the key to success. A new study by the Regulatory Assistance Project, Oeko-Institut, and Stefan Scheuer Consulting shows that energy efficiency is critical for achieving the carbon reduction goals set out in the Paris Agreement.

Art 7 - national progress reports

Energy Efficiency Directive Art 7: Assessment of national progress (2017)

619 718 marion santini
Art 7 - national progress reports

The Energy Efficiency Directive sets a requirement for Member States to put in place policies and measures to deliver each year from 2014-2020 new end-use energy savings worth 1.5% of energy sales (Article 7).

This report aims to assess and map national progress towards the Article 7 target.

It looks at the cumulative savings reported in 2014-2015 and compares them with the Article 7 targets notified by Member States.

The Energy Efficiency Directive and emissions reductions

Energy Efficiency Directive

Analysis by Stefan Scheuer Consulting shows that new and additional energy savings resulting from an extension of the most important requirements of the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) to 2030, as required to realise the EU’s cost-effective potential for energy savings, would significantly reduce GHG emissions in the sectors not included under the EU Emission Trading System (non-ETS sectors).
