Concerted Action EPBD IV

The Concerted Action EPBD (CA EPBD) addresses the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD). It aims to contribute to the reduction of energy use in European buildings, through the exchange of knowledge and best practices in the field of energy efficiency and energy savings between all 28 EU Member States plus Norway.
The EPBD is a cornerstone in EU legislation, and was developed to realise the saving potential in buildings, as they account for almost 40% of the consumption of energy in the EU. Full and efficient transposition of this directive is therefore central in achieving EU energy saving and carbon emission targets. The EPBD is considered as a significant legislative component in EU energy efficiency policy, and was adopted to contribute to the Kyoto commitment, securing energy supply and competitiveness.
The CA EPBD is a joint initiative between the EU Member States and the European Commission. It involves representatives of national ministries or their affiliated institutions who are in charge of preparing the technical, legal and administrative framework for the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (2002/91/EC) and the recast (2010/31/EC) in each EU Member State, plus Norway. The objective is to enhance the sharing of information and experiences from national adoption and implementation of this important European legislation.
The first CA EPBD was launched in 2005 and came to a close in June 2007. A second phase followed immediately after the first CA EPBD, and a third phase ran from 2011 to 2015.
The current CAIV_EPBD runs from October 2015 to March 2018 and aims to transpose and implement the EPBD recast, Directive 2010/31/EU. It is organised around meetings between national teams, regularly bringing together over 120 participants from 29 countries. It is accompanied by other measures to enhance communication, including a web platform and national reports. The Bulgarian participant in the project is the Sustainable Energy Development Agency (SEDA).
The CA EPBD has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.

„ODYSSEE-MURE, a decision support tool for energy efficiency policy evaluation“ Project

The project is funded by the Horizon2020 Program. It started on 1 February 2016 and shall continue 30 months. Bulgarian partner of the project is SEDA.
The project relies on two complementary Iinternet databases, that are regularly updated by the network of national teams (once to twice a year):
      -    ODYSSEE, managed by Enerdata, that contains detailed energy efficiency and CO2-indicators with data on energy consumption, their drivers (activity indicators) and their related CO2-emissions.
      -   MURE, managed by ISINNOVA, that contains a description, with their impact evaluation whenever available, of all energy efficiency measures implemented at EU or national level.
Project objectives:
The general objective of the project is to provide a comprehensive monitoring of energy consumption and efficiency trends as well as an evaluation of energy efficiency policy measures by sector for EU countries and Norway.
      -    Evaluate and compare energy efficiency progress by sector, and relate this progress to the observed trends in energy consumption.
      -   Contribute to the evaluation of national energy efficiency policy measures and analyse the dynamics of implementation over the NEAAPs.
To provide results in an interactive and attractive way to decision makers and actors involved in energy efficiency, the project will develop specific data facilities. The originality of the project is to cover all sectors and end-uses with a homogeneous and harmonised approach and to provide an overall picture of the trends and measures by sector.
Partners:
A network of 33 partners from 28 countries participate to the ODYSSEE MURE project, usually national Efficiency Agencies or their representatives within the European network of energy efficiency agencies.

Concerted Action for the Energy Efficiency Directive (CA EED)

Concerted Action for the Energy Efficiency Directive (CA EED)

The Concerted Action for the Energy Efficiency Directive (CA EED) was launched in spring 2013 in order to support the effective implementation of the Directive on Energy Efficiency (2012/27/EU) in all EU Member States as well as Norway.

By providing a trusted forum for exchange of experiences and collaboration, the CA EED helps countries learn from each other, avoid pitfalls and build on successful approaches when implementing the Directive.

The CA EED is financed under the Intelligent Energy Europe Programme of the European Commission and builds upon the second Concerted Action (CA ESD II) supporting the implementation of the Energy Services Directive (2006/32/EC). The CA EED benefits therefore from a strong European network and a wealth of information gathered and lessons learned.

More specifically, the objectives of the CA EED are to enhance and structure the sharing of information and experiences from national implementation whilst promoting good practice concepts in activities to improve and strengthen Member State implementation of the EED and to create favourable conditions for an accelerated degree of convergence of national procedures in EED related matters.

The work of the CA EED is structured around eight Core Themes covering the key requirements of the EED:

1. National Energy Efficiency Action Plans and annual reports and measuring progress in energy efficiency
2. Public Sector - public buildings and public purchasing
3. Metering and billing, demand response and grid issues
4. Funds and Financing for energy efficiency
5. Energy services and ESCOs, energy auditing, solving administrative barriers
6. Consumer information programmes, training and certification of professionals
7. Efficiency in Energy Supply, high efficiency CHP and heating/cooling
8. Energy efficiency obligation schemes, monitoring impacts of eligible measures

Final Core Theme Series Reports, 2013-2016:
Core Theme 1 - NEEAPs and annual reports and measuring progress in energy efficiency
Core Theme 2 - Public sector – public buildings and public purchasing
Core Theme 3 - Metering and billing, demand response and grid issues
Core Theme 4 - Funds and financing for energy efficiency
Core Theme 5 - Energy services and ESCOs, energy auditing, solving administrative barriers
Core Theme 6 - Consumer information programmes, training and certification of professionals
Core Theme 7 - Efficiency in Energy Supply, high efficiency CHP and heating/cooling
Core Theme 8 - Energy efficiency obligation schemes, monitoring impacts of eligible measures

Executive Summary Report 2013-2016

Monitoring of Energy Efficiency in the EU (ODYSSEE-MURE 2012)

Monitoring of Energy Efficiency in the EU (ODYSSEE-MURE 2012)


The general aims of the project are: comparison of the advance in the energy efficiency improvement in the EU member-states by Final energy consumption sectors, evaluation of the effect after the implementation of various policies and energy efficiency measures and studying of the National energy efficiency targets implementation. The project started in March 2013 and its duration is 30 months.

Concerted Action Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (CA-EPBD)

In 2004 the European Commission started a project for concerted actions about introducing Directive 2002/91/EC “Energy Performance of Buildings Directive” (CA-EPBD) in the framwork of Intelligent Energy Europe Programme. Energy Efficiency Agency (EEA) was authorized to join this project as a partner from Bulgaria. The participation of EEA in this project led to the successful harmonisation of this Directive in the Bulgarian legislation.
