Improving energy efficiency
|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
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: 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.
