On May 13, 2020, ENSMOV organised the first project webinar introducing the project, its objectives and partners. First results were presented, they are summarised in this article.
The project covers all Member States through the project partners and builds on past projects such as ENSPOL, MULTEE or EPATEE. It also builds on ongoing projects and programmes such as the Concerted Action EED.
ENSMOV is orientated towards stakeholders and extremely participatory with trainings and knowledge exchange. It includes the outlook to 2030 and beyond, and takes into account the EED recast.
On top of energy saving policies and energy efficiency obligation schemes (EEOs), it will focus on MRV and policy implementation as well as alternative measures.
A knowledge hub is now developed, soon available at www.article7eed.eu, it will provide:
- Comprehensive needs assessment and gap analysis
- Resources related to policy implementation and MRV
- Proceedings of conferences, workshops and webinars
- Policy reports at national level
- Policy recommendations on the implementation of EED art. 7
- Guidelines for policy makers and stakeholders involved in policy design and implementation
The policy cycles were then introduced by FIRE, presenting how knowledge-sharing is organised and the topics that will be highlighted. Many digital and physical events at different levels (EU, national and local) will allow exchanges, targeting policy makers and agencies, and others who are interested in our results!
Save the date! The next ENSMOV webinar / workshop will be organised May 28. We will discuss about the issue of MRV energy savings in relation to the fulfilment of article 7 EED obligations and particularly:
- how to design policies with cost minimization for MRV;
- tools for MRV;
- IT requirements for MRV;
- how to ensure and promote data exchange among ministries, agencies, and other stakeholders through MRV.
The purpose of the meeting is to facilitate interaction between representatives of ministries and implementing agencies in order to ensure data exchange among EU Members States.
A LinkedIN group is here to discuss topics of interest as they emerge from our reports and meetings.
To follow, Bettina Reidlinger from the Austrian Energy Agency presents results from a survey carried out to identify most relevant topics for experience sharing in context of EEOs and alternative measures under EED article 7, which results will be used to set up our Knowledge exchange programme and fed a report.
- description of the policy
- insights about results
- overview of policy mix
- interview w/ national expert Soon available for alternative measures
Trends in the EEOs design and management were presented:
- Overall stability + fine-tuning
- scopes of obligation and actions remained stable
- only 2 EEOs on energy distributors (Denmark, Italy)
- only 3 EEOs with a trading market (France, Italy, Poland) + 2 brokerage systems (Ireland, UK)
- all schemes started from 2013 include a “pay-to-save” or “buy-out” option (except Luxembourg)
- Developments in the M&V practices
- increasing targets = increasing number of projects to monitor
- higher number of projects = higher risks of frauds
- Developments in evaluation practices – See for example ex-post evaluations in Austria and France
