ENSMOV (Enhancing the Implementation and Monitoring and Verification practices of Energy Saving Policies under Article 7 of the Energy Efficiency Directive) is a 3-year project running from June 2019 onwards. The project is led by the Institute for European Energy and Climate Policy (http://www.ieecp.org) in the Netherlands and funded by the EU Horizon 2020 programme.
The implementation of the Article 7 of the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) by European Union Member States (MS) has shown so far that public authorities have limited time and resources to coordinate experience sharing at EU level. Similarly, these constraints limit their ability to research and adopt successful policy implementation approaches of other MS. Their focus is rather on designing, implementing, monitoring, reporting and evaluating their own national policies. However, national authorities and market stakeholders have consistently welcomed the opportunity to share experiences, policy implementation challenges and solutions specifically with regards to energy efficiency obligations (EEOs) and alternative measures and monitoring and verification (MRV) schemes.
What will ENSMOV do?
ENSMOV will support public authorities and key stakeholders in 14 Member States represented by its consortium (Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Lithuania, Netherlands, Poland, Romania and the UK) – and beyond, addressing all 28 MS and accession countries to monitor, revise, improve and complement the design and implementation of their national energy efficiency policies by developing resources on practical and strategic issues arising from the Article 7 EED. ENSMOV follows on from two other very influential projects that helped shape national policies to address Article 7 requirements of the EED – IEE ENSPOL (www.enspol.eu) and H2020 MULTEE (https://multee.eu/).
