|Acronym||CEN/CLC TR 16567|
This standard PD CEN/CLC/TR 16567:2013 Energy Efficiency Obligation Schemes in Europe. Overview and analysis of main features and possibilities for harmonisation is classified in these ICS categories:
27.015 Energy efficiency. Energy conservation in general
This Technical Report, analyses and describes the concept of energy efficiency obligation schemes and white certificate schemes for energy efficiency improvement, based on the experiences in Europe. It is mainly focussed on the current systems in use in Italy, France, Denmark and Great Britain. These national systems have been in operation long enough to gain some valuable experiences about the systems. Information about these experiences is easily accessible. Some additional information about the regional system in Flanders, Belgium, Poland, Ireland, Spain and Portugal have been included in this Technical Report when considered relevant. This Technical Report also analyses the need and/or possibility to harmonise a system in Europe (i.e. to write a standard). It also includes an analysis of some countries’ hesitation to introduce white certificate systems.
