Energy efficiency potential in buildings, barriers and ways to finance projects in New Member States and Candidate Countries

Funded under: FP7-JRC

Abstract

The overall aim of the workshop was to contribute to the implementation of the new energy savings measures and to provide more accurate information and data to National and European policy makers, in particular on the electricity use in buildings and on the energy services activities. These data will be used to promote the diffusion of efficient technologies and innovative energy saving schemes.
The scope of the workshop was to foster the energy services activities and the efficient use of electricity in tertiary and residential sectors from New Member States and Candidate Countries. Another important target of the event was to help the decision makers to improve the Energy Efficiency Framework, at National levels, in order to contribute to reach the overall environmental and energy targets.
The previous two editions of the workshop were focused mostly on data collection about the electricity end-use efficiency in buildings from tertiary and residential sectors in New Member States and Candidate Countries. As result new data were obtained and gathered for a detailed report. Now the level of knowledge in this area has improved and new decisions could be adopted in order to foster the energy saving activities. This present edition of our workshop comprised also discussions concerning the results of this report.
This third edition addressed mainly energy services and financing of energy efficiency projects in buildings from New Member States and Candidate Countries, presented also highlights of electricity end-use status and conclusions about electricity saving potential.
