Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy: a Virtuous Circle.

  1. 1. Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy: a Virtuous Circle EP Side Event: ENERGY EFFICIENCY AND TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER Dr. Pedro L. Marín Spanish Secretary of State for Energy Cancún, December 9, 2010
  2. 2. Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energies contribute to the three main energy priorities: security of supply, sustainability and competitiveness. Competitiveness Security of supply Sustainability Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energies: Security of supply, sustainability and competitiveness
  3. 3. <ul><li>Reduce energy dependency. </li></ul><ul><li>Reduce the impact of fossil prices and exchanges rates volatility on domestic consumer prices. </li></ul><ul><li>Renewable energies are locally produced </li></ul><ul><li>There is less need for additional infrastructures. </li></ul><ul><li>4 pp dependency reduction since 2005. </li></ul><ul><li>5 pp aditional reduction by 2020. </li></ul>Energy dependency Spain Security of supply
  4. 4. <ul><li>A more responsible consumption of energy leads to lower emissions per unit of energy production. </li></ul><ul><li>Energy efficiency is the most direct response to future energy consumptions peaks, fossil fuel use and emissions reduction. </li></ul>Emerging economies’ energy consumption evolution Sustainability
  5. 5. <ul><li>Energy sector is responsible for 80% greenhouse gases emissions. </li></ul><ul><li>Clean energies reduce directly and drastically these emissions. </li></ul>Sustainability -CO2 emissions reduction in the energy sector: 15% since 2005. -Emission reduction in electricity generation from 407 tons of CO2/GWh in 2005 to 281 ton CO2/GWh in 2010. Spain
  6. 6. <ul><li>Investing in energy efficiency produces benefits from the beginning. </li></ul>Emissions abatement costs by sector Electric sector Energy efficiency Fuel switching and CCS Alternative transport fuels Competitiveness Fuente: Perspectivas sobre tecnología energética 2008. AIE. Costes de abatimiento por sectores
  7. 7. <ul><li>Energy efficiency improves the competitiveness of our economies. </li></ul>Spain vs. EU Energy Intensity 1995 - 2009 <ul><li>In Spain, energy efficiency measures have produced a reduction of energy intensity by 13% in the last 5 years, following the European trend started in the mid nineties. </li></ul>Spain Competitiveness
  8. 8. <ul><li>Renewable energies: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Cost will fall sharply over the next 10 years. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Create local and rural development and employment. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Promote technological development. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Are the most competitive way to facilitate access to energy in isolated areas (vs. grid additional capacity or small inefficient plants) </li></ul></ul>Competitiveness PV cost evolution
