EEW3 aims to support the political work in the field of energy efficiency and intends to motivate political action among decision makers, especially among parliamentarians (European Parliament, EU28 national Parliaments).
The specific objective of the “Energy Efficiency Watch 3” project is to continue the work undertaken by EEW2 project and to facilitate the process of implementation of the Energy Services Directive. The core objective of EEW3 is to establish a constant feedback loop on the implementation of European and national energy efficiency policies and thus enable mutual learning on effective policy making across the EU.
EEW3 screens progress of national policies, looks into legislative documents, seeks experts’ knowledge via an EU-wide survey and creates new consultation platforms with a wide spectrum of stakeholders (parliamentarians, regions, cities; European, business and expert stakeholders). It compiles 28 country reports, provides strategic conclusions for more effective policies and presents 10 case studies of well-established policy packages and a Feedback Loop Report.
It thereby intends to improve the implementation of European energy efficiency policies on the energy demand side, such as the new Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) as the main focus of EEW3, but also related policies like the Energy Performance in Buildings Directive (EPBD) and the Eco-Design (ErP) Directive on the national, but also on the regional and local level.
