The International Energy Agency (IEA) and RAP are conducting an in-depth analysis for the G7 on the design of market-based instruments for the delivery of energy efficiency. The study examines market mechanisms and economic instruments, such as auctions and tendering programmes, utility obligations, and white certificates, analysing the choices that policymakers face and the key factors behind successful programme design and implementation in different contexts.
In this webinar, which is part of Leonardo Energy’s “DSM University,” Dr. Jan Rosenow and Richard Cowart of RAP and Samuel Thomas of IEA presented initial findings, including global best practices for market-based instruments, the strategic choices around policy instruments in the energy transition, and the issues facing policymakers on obligations, auctions, and monitoring and verification.
