What are EEOs, WCs, ESOs, etc? – Recent EU and Global Experience

By Eoin Lees

What’s in a name? That which we call an EEO, by any other name would still save energy. Whether called energy efficiency obligations (EEO), white certificates (WC), energy supplier obligations (ESO), or energy efficiency performance standards (EEPS), these policy mechanisms create an obligation for an energy company or legal entity to save end-use energy throug...

Why EEOs are Better Than a CO2 Tax and Do EEOs Work?

By Eoin Lees

As Europe pushes to decarbonise its energy sector, concerns about energy affordability are rising alongside increases in supply costs. The European Union’s emissions trading system increases the cost of energy and sends strong price signals to the supply side, but much weaker signals to the demand side. Implementing policies to address demand could have dramati...

Article 7 of the Energy Efficiency Directive & Revised German Notification: Key Issues

By Eoin Lees

Article 7 of the European Union’s Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) requires individual member states to meet energy saving targets largely through end use energy efficiency by the end of 2020. These mandatory targets are based on average annual energy consumption in the period 2010 through 2012. Using Germany’s plan to comply with Article 7 as an example, Eo...
