Industrial waste heat recovery is a key factor for energy savings. In most industrial processes that need heat, the thermal energy produced is not used in full and part of it is rejected as "waste heat". The waste heat recovery can be used internally to cover the heating needs of the process or of the industrial building. It can also be used to meet the heating requirements of other companies or buildings in the surroundings, using a district heating network. The recovered heat can also be converted into electricity, for internal or external use.

This document describes and analyses planned energy efficiency obligation schemes (EEOs) in Austria, Bulgaria, Estonia, Hungary, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Ireland, Spain and Slovenia as prescribed in the Energy Efficiency Directive EED. The report shows that the main driver of the new EEOs is improving energy efficiency and that the main obligated parties are energy suppliers, followed by energy distributors who will realise efficiency improvements in different end-use sectors.

This document describes and analyses the existing energy efficiency obligation schemes (EEOs) in Flanders (Belgium), France, United Kingdom, Denmark, Poland and Italy expected to deliver a certain amount of end-use energy savings over the 2014-2020 obligation period as prescribed in the Energy Efficiency Directive EED. It is shown that overall, the majority of end-use energy savings have come from relatively low cost energy measures in the buildings sector.

This document describes and analyses alternative measures introduced in Austria, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Sweden and the UK as prescribed in the article 7 of the Energy Efficiency Directive EED, by examining their key implementation and design features.  It focuses on the different interpretations of regulatory requirements by the Member States (MS) regarding additionality and double counting, which allows for the identification of related risks and feasibility barriers faced by some alternative measures towards meeting with their estimated savings.

Recent results published by the French Energy Agency ADEME show that in the year 2013, 265,000 private owned dwellings and houses were renovated in France for a better energy performance. This corresponds to a 1.3% increase compared to the 2011 figures. 90,000 energy renovations were executed in one stage in 2013, while others began 2 or 3 years prior to 2013 and were finished in 2013. The average renovation budget is 5,210 € (including taxes), with 65% of the energy renovations below 5,000 € and only 15% above 10,000 €.
