The energy efficiency strategy: the energy efficiency opportunity in the UK
12th November 2012
The Energy Efficiency strategy sets the direction for energy efficiency policy for the coming decades in the United Kingdom.
This strategy describes the UK government’s ambition, the barriers they need to address, and the additional steps they are taking to stimulate the energy efficiency market. It shows how the government will act to connect finance with demand, encourage innovation, and make energy efficiency information more accessible to the consumer.
Energy efficiency: a recipe for success
1st September 2010
This report presents the results of a three-year study on ‘Energy Efficiency Policies’ coordinated by ADEME (French Environment and Energy Management Agency) with the technical assistance of ENERDATA and contributions from more than 70 World Energy Council member countries. The study was aimed at monitoring energy efficiency trends through various indicators and evaluating energy efficiency policies. The report provides updated information and expands the range of countries covered in previous reports prepared by ADEME and WEC for the last five World Energy Congresses.
Scenarios on the introduction of CO2 emission performance standards for the EU power sector
1st January 2009
In this paper, the introduction of Emission Performance Standards (EPS) as a means for po-tential emission reductions in the European power sector was assessed. EPS in the power sec-tor can already be found in California, USA, since 2007 as well as in the US states of Oregon, Washington and Montana, which introduced EPS schemes following the example of Califonia.
