Russia has acknowledged energy efficiency as an important direction for its policy development. In 2008, an economy-wide target was set to reduce energy intensity by 40% by 2020 in relation to 2007. The target is supported by Federal Law 261 on Energy Savings and Energy Efficiency (2009) and the State Program on Energy Efficiency (2014).
The main objective of the proposed revision of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) which the European Commission released on the 30th November 2016 “is to accelerate the cost effective renovation of existing buildings.
This report, Enhancing Energy efficiency in India: Assessment of sectoral potentials, presents a model based assessment of the potential for improvements in energy efficiency in key sectors of the Indian economy. It also identifies a set of short, medium and long term High Impact Opportunities for energy efficiency, which in combination with various technological options and policies, have potential to provide required future energy services much more efficiently.
Argentina’s significant domestic natural gas and hydro resources has led to an electricity generation system based on these fuel sources, offering low electricity prices. However, declining gas production due to the exhaustion of resources coupled with growing energy consumption is emphasizing the importance of both diversifying energy supply and managing energy demand.
This report, High Impact Opportunities for Energy Efficiency in China, presents six High Impact Opportunities (HIOs) for improvements to energy efficiency in China in the transport, building, industry and power sectors. These HIOs have been selected from the long list of HIOs identified with economic and energy modelling by the same expert team in the report, Enhancing Energy Efficiency in China: Assessment of Sectoral Potentials.
