Review of Energy Efficiency Policy in Industry: A new brochure on policy instruments implemented to improve energy efficiency in industry has been produced mainly based on information available in the MURE database. The brochure analyses measures included in the National Energy Efficiency Action Plans (NEEAPs) as well as those corresponding to the IEA recommendations for industry. One of the key findings is that in quite many countries the policy mix needs to be better balanced to address the multiple drivers of energy efficiency in industry. Another key finding is that the set of measures proposed in the Energy Efficiency Directive represent an ambition level quite far from the current implementation status of these measures in Europe, requiring massive additional effort from the Member States.   Read more
