In 2014 the IEA published Capturing the Multiple Benefits of Energy Efficiency, which outlined an approach for capturing a range of non-energy benefits of energy efficiency. Now the IEA is in the process of updating its work on this topic, including by exploring impacts of energy efficiency not covered in the 2014 publication, and the new evidence beyond energy savings. To this end, the IEA held a workshop between 5-7 March in Paris.
The workshop brought together policy makers, evaluators and private sector representatives to explore the latest evidence on the use and analysis of the multiple benefits of energy efficiency. The aim was to share experiences and identify areas where further work is needed to improve the evidence base.
Day 1 presented the recent case studies on energy efficiency policy resulting in non-energy benefits; Day 2 explored what policymakers need to design and communicate the multiple benefits of energy efficiency, and how those needs can be met; and Day 3 built on the discussion of day 2 to explore methodological issues related to calculating non-energy benefits of energy efficiency.
