- Atlantic Energy Efficiency
This project has been funded by the European Union within the framework of the Pilot Project on Transatlantic Methods for Handling Global Challenges with the following broad objectives:
I. Main Objectives
Specifically, to highlight how and to what extent support for energy efficiency and associated technologies and innovation can contribute to wider economic stimulus ‐ ‘Green New Deal’ – type ambitions.
Help policy makers in EU, US and emerging economies better understand how to maximise the impact- in terms of energy efficiency, the development of economic activity, climate change impacts etc – of support for energy technologies and related R&D.
Create a virtual Global Energy Efficiency Forum, to support ongoing dialogue and interaction between academics, business and policy leaders to generate mutual respect and understanding about their view and analyses as to how improved energy efficiency and associated technologies can be mobilised.
Contribute to the post Kyoto and Copenhagen climate change outcomes by providing evidence to inform the continuing evolution of policy as regards energy efficiency and technology and research and development and to R&D policy for the future.
The scope of the project includes energy efficiency in buildings, transport and industry, and the emphasis is on the policies needed to achieve both implementation of existing well established technologies, and to stimulate the development and implementation of energy saving innovations in both products and services.
A key component is the preparation of seven Commissioned Papers
