The higher the 2030 Energy Efficiency target, the higher the benefits
The Coalition for Energy Savings has commissioned a study to Cambridge Econometrics to quantify the multiple benefits resulting from different levels of ambition of the 2030 energy efficiency target in the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) recast.
The study models the benefits of the three scenarios that are being discussed in the EED trilogues: an energy efficiency target of at least 9% (Minimum Efficiency), 13% (REPowerEU Efficiency) and 14.5% (Enhanced Efficiency); its main conclusion is that the higher the 2030 EU energy efficiency target will be, the more benefits will materialise for the EU economy, the environment and the society.
The benefits of an enhanced 2030 energy efficiency target are clear and cannot be ignored in the current situation of economic and social turmoil; they must guide the interinstitutional negotiations and be at the core of the political agreement on the EED recast.
Every percent counts: the benefits of each 1% increase of the 2030 EU energy efficiency target
Energy efficiency measures bring multiple benefits to citizens and society as a whole, including reduced energy imports, lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, cuts in energy bills, improved health, and new and local jobs. In the final stages of the trilogue...
