The overarching objective of EEW4 is to support policy makers in European Union Member States in improving the degree of successful implementation of policy instruments for energy efficiency, and thus contribute to reaching the target of the Energy Efficiency Directive.
Building on the findings and methodological approaches of EEW1-EEW3 and experience and network of the consortium members, this project will add a new dimension to the traditional approach of policy analysis. EEW4 has three main objectives, of which the first focuses on the roll-out of the revised EU directives on energy efficiency under the umbrella of the Clean Energy Package (CEP), primarily on EED and EPBD. The second objective aims at generating new insights on the link between policies and narratives, and the third objective is the application of this knowledge for narrative building and testing.
Objective 1: Discuss and broadly disseminate the essence of revised EU directives with decision makers and the relevant stakeholder community, through:
Objective 2: Create a strong link between energy efficiency policies triggered by the new EU directives EED and EPBD, and supportive narratives. This will be achieved through:
Objective 3: Develop and test new narratives and provide policy recommendations. This will be achieved through:
