  • Energy efficiency policy in Slovenia

    Slovenia set up its own energy efficiency policy in the Strategy of Energy Use and Supply of Slovenia, adopted by the National Assembly of the Republic of Slovenia in early 1996. Energy efficiency policy in Slovenia is in harmony with the European Commission's policy concerning the promotion of energy efficiency. The new Energy Act, adopted in September 1999, defines energy efficiency as equally ...

  • Energy Policy Scenarios to 2050

    So much has changed in the world of energy since WEC last prepared scenarios in the 1990s. While these were updated at the turn of the century to take into account new assumptions about population, the prices of oil and gas, climate change, and technology developments, it became apparent that the real issues today are the emergence of massive new energy demand in China and India, the market power ...

  • Urban energy policy design

    Over 60 per cent of global energy demand is consumed in cities, where roughly half of the world's population lives. Moreover, the urban population is expected to continue increasing rapidly due to growing urbanisation in emerging economies and developing countries, putting cities at the centre of the sustainable energy challenge. Cities can play an important role in the application of sustainable ...

  • Integrating sustainability in energy policy modelling

    As a major challenge to humanity, sustainable development calls for safe, environmentally sound, and economically viable energy pathways. This is a global challenge, not only to energy policy change and defining operational terms of sustainability, but also to improving analytical tools and modelling frameworks. To this end, fundamental requirements of sustainable development are discussed from a ...

  • Energy and climate policy: colleagues or competitors?

    Forecasts and scenarios foresee increasing levels of energy consumption and CO2 emission. Even without strong interventionist policies, the CO2 growth rate may level off. The question is whether this slow-down will be in time from a climate perspective. A combination of early CO2 stabilisation in the OECD, Eastern Europe and the former USSR in combination with more expenditure on R&D might enable ...

  • Some elements of energy conservation policy under the energy policy guidelines of Poland

    This paper discusses the energy conservation policy issues in the context of an overall state energy policy, including regulations which came into force under the new Energy Law provisions. As a result of the analysis performed, it was confirmed that in the period of market transformation in Poland, a key factor of energy efficiency improvement would be an appropriate energy pricing policy. At ...

  • Midwest manufacturing snapshot : energy use and efficiency policies

    The workforce and economies of Midwestern states are more reliant on manufacturing than in any other U.S. region. Like the U.S. as a whole, during the past decade, the Midwest lost one-third of its total manufacturing workforce. With the central focus of state governments on economic development, there is a growing interest in understanding how industrial energy efficiency investments could ...

  • Quantitative assessment of solar energy geo-policy risks

    Fossil fuels, such as coal, oil, gas, and wood, are the major part of contemporary energy mix. However, forecasts predict that solar energy will take up to 70% of global energy mix by year 2100. Solar energy has embedded risks, e.g., social, geopolitical, health-related, etc. These risks should be addressed in advance to prevent negative consequences but little research has addressed systemic ...

  • Capacity Building for Renewable Energy Promotion Policies and Measures

    Japan will undertake a training and information exchange program in cooperation with China and India to assist formulation of renewable energy promotion policies and measures in consideration of best-matched practices in both a national and local context. Training seminars are expected to be held once or twice a year, for a duration of one to two weeks, including site ...

  • Environmental policies and the trade of energy technologies in Europe

    Environmental regulation may represent a relevant mechanism through which technological change is induced. In this way, countries that are subject to more stringent environmental regulations may become net exporters of environmental technologies. This paper provides new evidence on the evolution of trade flows of specific environmental technologies for the energy sector, related to the production ...

  • Benchmarking as a strategic policy tool for energy management

    In this paper, we analyse to what extent benchmarking is a valuable tool in strategic energy policy analysis. First, the theory on benchmarking is concisely presented, e.g., by discussing the benchmark wheel and the benchmark path. Next, some results of surveys among business firms are presented. To offer a more detailed analysis of the scope and potential of benchmarking, results are presented ...
