Workshop II: Suppliers’ Obligations and White Certificates

Tuesday 21 January, 13:30 - 16:00

Workshop Leader: Paolo Bertoldi, European Commission DG JRC

In the European Union (EU) an increasing number of countries have introduced energy companies' obligations to save energy though projects implemented in end-users' premises. The new Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) mandates the introduction of this policy instrument to all 28 EU Member States.

In some of the existing energy companies' obligations (in particular in tradable white certificates' schemes), ESCOs are the key actor to implement energy efficiency projects. In other schemes, utilities prefer to implement the energy saving project by themselves creating an energy service companies. Both models have been successful and delivered savings in excess of the target.

The workshop presents the analysis of the existing energy companies' obligations in Europe, and focuses in particular on a detailed assessment of successful models of co-operation between ESCOs and utilities in the implementation of energy efficiency improvement measures under the existing schemes.
