Energy-intensive industries – energy efficiency policies and evaluations

Teacher Hans De Keulenaer, Christian Stenqvist

Description

The webinar will review results from academic evaluations of energy efficiency and climate mitigation policies that have targeted energy-intensive industry on EU and Member State level. The EU emissions trading system, by some portrayed as Europe´s flagship policy to tackle climate change, has had little effect in triggering innovative low-carbon solutions. Other policy approaches taken by Member States have centred on site-level energy management practices linked with national incentives and obligations that stimulates industrial energy efficiency as a strategy aiming at multiple objectives. Remarks are also made about policy design and the role of evaluation to foster policy improvements.
