European Commission to look into energy saving effects caused by improved resource efficiency
The European Commission has launched a new project to identify energy saving effects caused by improved resource efficiency, a recent news report has been able to reveal.
One of the key sustainability initiatives of the EC is the so-called ‘A resource-efficient Europe’ – a flagship initiative of the Europe 2020 Strategy that aims at supporting the shift towards a resource-efficient, low-carbon economy to achieve sustainable growth.
As part of the long-term framework, the EC’s DG Environment has commissioned five external firms to identify energy saving effects caused by improved resource efficiency. Objective of the research is to assess the economic, social and political barriers hampering the twofold effects on resources and energy savings, and subsequently propose the most efficient (policy) measures to remove these barriers.
“Increasing resource efficiency is key to securing growth and jobs for Europe. It will bring major economic opportunities, improve productivity, drive down costs and boost competitiveness,” states the EC in the outline of its programme.
