Description:From June 2000 until the autumn of 2001, EVA, the Austrian Energy Efficiency Agency studied the implementation of long-term agreements (LTA) on energy efficiency in energy-intensive industry. Various forms of LTA were examined with regard to their effects and the elements necessary for success, as well as the possibilities for implementation in Austria. Because Austria had no tradition of energy efficiency LTAs, the EVA sought to find out how LTAs should be designed to enable their integration into the mix of Austrias energy efficiency policy instruments.
