bne on the Review of Directive 2012/27/EU on Energy Efficiency

Consultation of the European Commission on the Review of Directive 2012/27/EU on Energy Efficiency

The consultation was launched to collect views and suggestions from different stakeholders and citizens in view of the review of Directive 2012/27/EU on energy efficiency, foreseen for the second half of 2016.
bne particularly emphasizes that separate targets for energy efficiency in the power sector dismiss interdependencies resulting from substitutional measures in other sectors and suggests to rethink the conceptual basis and overall systemic approach for energy efficiency. In general, the basic principle for energy efficiency should focus on the needed CO2-reductions and how these can be achieved in the most economically efficient manner.
