A new directive on energy efficiency

  1. 1. A new Directive on Energy Efficiency - Challenges addressed & solutions proposed - DG Energy 22 June 2011
  2. 2. AS DEPENDENCE ON ENERGY IMPORTS IS LIKELY TO GROW « Business as usual » scenario based on 2009 figures OIL GAS in % 2005 2008 2020 2030 2005 2008 2020 2030 100 94 % 93 % 84 % 80 82 % 83 % 76 % 62 % 60 58 % 40 20 Today, Europe imports more than half of the energy it uses. If nothing changes, our dependence on fossil fuel imports will rise by 2030. Source: European Commission
  3. 3. AND ENERGY USE IS A MAJOR SOURCE OF EMISSIONS Share of greenhouse gas emissions in 2008 Agriculture 10% Industry Processes 8% Waste 3% Other 0% Energy 79% Source: EEA 2010
  4. 4. MEETING ALL THREE “20-20-20 BY 2020” GOALS BECOMES AMATTER OF URGENCY Reduce greenhouse Increase share of Reduce energy gas levels by 20% renewables to 20% consumption by 20% 100% Current Current trend to 2020 -20% trend to -10% 2020 Current trend to 2020 20%
  5. 5. SO FAR THE EU IS NOT ON TRACK TO MEET ITS 20% ENERGY SAVING TARGET BY 2020 1900 Projections from 2007 business 1842 Mtoe 1850 Projections from 2009 as 20% Energy saving objectivePrimary energy consumption*, Mtoe usual 1800 1750 1700 1678 Mtoe Status 1650 today 1600 GAP 1550 1474 Mtoe 1500 -20% objective 1450 1400 2005 2010 2015 2020 * Gross inland consumption minus non-energy uses
  6. 6. DESPITE ITS CRUCIAL BENEFITS FOR EUROPE … Reduce EU’s energy bill by about € 200 bn annualy in 2020 Create up to 2 million new jobs by 2020 Boost R&D & markets for EU global leadership Competitiveness Security of Sustainability supply Reduce EU’s energy dependence Reduce CO2 emissions Reduce investments in energy infrastructures Limit environmental degradation Improve the energy trade balance
  7. 7. AND THE COMPREHENSIVE SET OF EUROPEAN POLICIES & MEASURES INPLACE TO ADDRESS ENERGY EFFICIENCY IN ALL ITS ASPECTS EUROPEAN ENERGY EFFICIENCY POLICIES & MEASURES Energy Efficiency Plan International Programmes Targets & networks cooperation Financial R&D tools Energy efficiency legislation “Soft” laws Fiscal tools
  8. 8. COMBINED WITH NATIONAL INTENTIONS WILL NOT SUFFICE in Mtoe 400 350 EU 20% 300 250 200 150 Existing national EE 100 targets as of 2011 50 0
  9. 9. TO TAP THE REMAINING ECONOMIC ENERGY SAVING POTENTIALSFOR 2020 THROUGHOUT THE SECTORS Savings expected to be achieved with already existing measures Remaining saving potential to be addressed with new measures 29% 11% 16% 2% 5%
  10. 10. A NEW IMPETUS IS NEEDED: COMMISSION PUTS FORWARD A NEWENERGY EFFICIENCY DIRECTIVE Public Sectoral House- Energy Services Industry sector measures holds supply Indicative General national EE New measures targets EED promoting EE Monitoring & Reporting
  11. 11. PUBLIC SECTOR TO LEAD BY EXAMPLE Status EED proposals • Public sector • Purchase of products, services 19% consumption makes & buildings with high energy important share of efficiency performance EU’s GDP 12% • Share of public buildings in building • Annual renovation target of 3% stock for public buildings above 250 m² • Low average energy performance of • Local energy efficiency plans existing buildings and introduction of energy stock, incl. public management systems buildings • Cost optimal renovation can bring • More systematic use of Energy up to 60% energy Performance Contracting savings
  12. 12. CREATING BENEFITS FOR CONSUMERS THROUGH THE PROVISIONOF TAILORED ENERGY SERVICES AND INFORMATION Status EED proposals • Considerable saving • National energy efficiency potential unused in obligation scheme for utilities the residential and services sectors • Obligation for individual energy • Slow uptake of market meters, reflecting actual energy for energy efficiency consumption & information on services actual time of use • Lack of awareness & access to appropriate information on EE • Ensure accuracy & frequency of benefits billing based on actual • Technological consumption developments (e.g. smart meters/ grids) • Appropriate information with the not sufficiently bill providing comprehensive reflecting households account of current energy costs interests
  13. 13. IMPROVING ENERGY EFFICIENCY IN TRANSFORMATION ANDDISTRIBUTION OF ENERGY Status EED proposals • Fragmented • 10-year national heat & cooling plans: regulations & transparency, predictability & Remaining incentives to address alignment of policies for potential waste across supply investments chain Achieved • Waste heat recovery (CHP) savings • CHP uses 30% less fuel obligation for new and existing for the same amount of power & industrial plants heat & power but level of use in EU low: 11% vs. • Network tariffs design to encourage 21%. offering services for consumers allowing them to save energy & control consumption • New generation installations not systematically • National annual inventories of reflecting level of Best generation installations to monitor Available Technologies efficiency levels
  14. 14. INCREASE AWARENESS FOR BENEFITS STEMMING FROM ENERGYEFFICIENCY IMPROVEMENTS IN INDUSTRY Status EED proposals • Important share in • Member States to create 28% overall final energy incentives for SMEs to undergo consumption energy audits Remaining • Considerable • Dissemination of best practices on potential progress made but benefits of energy management potential remaining systems for SME businesses Achieved savings • Energy efficient • Mandatory audits for large technologies and companies & incentives for the EE best practices implementation of recommended readily available measures and the introduction of Energy Management Systems

  16. 16. POSSIBLE TIME PLANNING AFTER ADOPTION • European Parliament to nominate a rapporteur • First presentation & discussions in the Council EnergyJuly 2011 Working Group under Polish PresidencySeptember • Continuation of discussions in the Council Energy- December Working Group2011 • Discussion in the EP • Energy Council (November)January – • Achieving of political agreementJune 2012June – • Finalization of the legislative text under the CyprusDecember Presidency2012 • Entering into for force of Energy Efficiency Directive by the end of 2012December • Implementation of the new Directive in the MS2013June 2014 • Assessment of progress towards 20% saving objective
