On 5 April 2016 the JRC presented the interactive and collaborative online European Energy Efficiency Platform. This beta platform is conceived to fill the gap opened by scattered data and fragmented knowledge resulting from a rapidly growing energy efficiency market. It is expected to be both a one-stop shop for information retrieval and a meeting point for experts to exchange data and reduce redundant activities.
Workshop on experiences and policies on energy saving obligations and white certificates
The purpose of the workshop is to provide a forum for policy makers and stakeholders to review and discuss outcomes and results of existing energy saving obligations and white certificate schemes in Europe and beyond. The main objective of the workshop is provide for critical assessment of core design issues drawing upon experiences gained in the actual design, implementation and evaluation of existing European schemes, such as sectoral coverage of the schemes, category of obliged parties (suppliers or distributors), importance of trading and market set-up, cost-recovery mechanisms, and penalties for non-compliance. Furthermore, key issues such as cost effectiveness of energy savings delivered by these schemes, including the cost of implementation, should also be explored so as to contrast and compare white certificate schemes with alternative policy instruments designed to deliver the same outcomes.
The workshop will take place in Varese (Italy) on 9-10 April 2013. Separate sessions will provide a critical assessment of existing energy saving obligations and white certificates from the perspective of both policy makers and market stakeholders, exploring possible strengths, weaknesses, threats and opportunities related to suppliers' obligations and white certificate
