EU unveils energy efficiency action plan

An ‘Energy Efficiency Action Plan’ containing a package of priority measures covering a wide range of cost effective energy efficiency initiatives has been launched by the European Commission (EC). The plan forms part of the EC’s plan to realise a more than 20% saving in primary energy consumption by 2020, and it calls for actions to make energy appliances, buildings, transport and energy generation more efficient.

Take the “˜Six Degrees of Energy Efficiency’ challenge

[img:Kateri callahan.jpg|Kateri Callahan, President Alliance]Washington, DC, U.S.A. --- (METERING.COM) --- November 27, 2006 – A new ‘Six Degrees of Energy Efficiency Challenge’ has been launched by the Alliance to Save Energy and 29 partners from its ‘Power in Your Hands’ campaign. The Alliance to Save Energy (ASE) is a coalition of prominent business, government, environmental, and consumer leaders who promote the efficient and clean use of energy worldwide to benefit consumers, the environment, economy, and national security.

Demand side management potential in Canada: Energy efficiency study

Canada faces several large and growing challenges on the energy front and there is an increasing recognition that governments must work together with industry and other stakeholders to address these challenges. While there has been significant focus on addressing supply issues, there are economic, social, health, environmental, and energy security benefits in achieving greater energy efficiency and energy demand management.

There has been uncertainty about the energy demand reduction that can be realized from energy efficiency, and Demand Side Management (DSM) measures. Research to date has looked at various aspects of the potential for
demand reduction that can result from energy management efforts and most studies have focused on a single fuel in a single jurisdiction. As well experts have expressed differences in opinion concerning the energy efficiency potential
for Canada.

The Demand Side Management Working Group (DSMWG) comprised of representatives from federal and provincial governments, the energy utility industry, major energy users and nongovernment organizations, commissioned a report on potential energy demand reductions to be realized from conservation and energy efficiency and demand side management.
