Objective: To identify and evaluate the various policy instruments in place in EU Member States. These seek
to promote RES-E,
to promote CHP and heat generation (industry & household sectors),
to support a more rational use of electricity (industry, households and tertiary sector),
to regulate conventional electricity production and
to control GHG emissions (taxes, emissions trading…)
Moreover, it is of importance to analyse linkages between various strategies and, finally, to provide detailled information in form of a matrix for all EU Member States (input for simulations with the model Green-X).
Duration: December 2002 – May 2004
Participants: EEG, IT-Power, RISOE, ISI, EGL, EREC
In more detail, the following subtasks occur:
Objective: To undertake a comprehensive review of the relevant policies in all Member States and of published EU-wide reviews for:
promotion of RES-E,
CHP and heat generation (Industry & household sectors),
a more rational use of electricity (industry, households and tertiary sector),
regulation schemes for conventional electricity production and
control of GHG emissions (taxes, emissions trading, international activities like Kyoto-strategies…).
to give a review of existing label systems in Europe,
to derive recommendations for creating a label system.
Objective: Organisation of qualitative and quantitative data on a country by country basis (up-date of task 3.1)
Completion of a database with respect to the promotion schemes (quantitative matrix), which can be directly used as input for the model Green-X;
Analysis of the linkages among the various policies (RES-E, CHP, conventional electricity generation, DSM activities, GHG reduction) and
Derivation of recommendations for policy coherence, balancing the need for increased supply, with a more efficient and sustainable energy market for the EU.
