Abstract [en]

Energy Efficiency Obligation Schemes (EEOS) as suggested in the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) could help remove barriers to energy efficiency. However, despite the fact that such schemes have been successfully implemented and proven cost-effective in several Member States, not all countries are convinced of their potential benefits. In this paper, we investigate the policy instruments that Sweden has introduced or is planning to introduce for achieving increased industrial efficiency under the EED’s requirements. Our preliminary results show that these instruments are not exploiting the full potential of energy savings, especially in energy intensive industries. We present the design of an EEOS as an alternative policy instrument to alleviate some of the barriers to energy efficiency that the industries face today. The implications of the EED for industries in Sweden are evaluated together with the insights from EEOSs carried out in other Member States and the practices of industrial energy efficiency policies in Sweden. Finally, we identify possible pathways that could engage the industries in energy saving measures including the EEOS for removing non-economic and regulatory barriers to energy efficiency in the industrial sector.
