Description: Exogenously set improvement in efficiency. Such improvements can be introduced for the submodels that focus on particular technologies, for example, in transport, heavy industry and households submodels.
Is implemented in: Energy demand

Associated policy response component

Component: Air pollution and energy policies
Page: Air pollution and energy policies/Policy issues

Effects of this policy intervention on components

Component: Energy demand
Effect : More efficient use of final energy, change in end use technologies, which leads to lower energy demand.

Component: Emissions
Effect :

Component: Energy supply
Effect : Efficiency improvements result in a decreased energy demand, resulting in less need for energy supply.

Component: Energy conversion
Effect : Efficiency improvements result in less energy input at an equal energy output of conversion technologies. This results in a lower need for conversion capacity.
