Potential Impacts of the Initiative and Project

  • Improved energy efficiency and more energy savings through more active legislators and better political and legislative measures, more coherent implementation, instruments and activities in the field of energy efficiency and energy savings. Visible contribution to the increase of the energy efficiency of at least 1% per year in all Member States.
  • Improved experience exchange amongst national Parliamentarians and between national and European Parliamentarians about political measures, instruments and activities for more energy efficiency and energy savings and related issues
  • Increased level of awareness/knowledge of Parliamentarians across Europe of all levels/broader public on political measures, instruments and activities in the field of energy efficiency and energy savings
  • Reduced EU energy import dependency for oil products (for transport and heating) and for gas (for power generation and heating)
  • Reduced energy costs for EU businesses and citizens whilst decreasing vulnerability to energy price volatility and future energy price rises; SMEs and the fuel poor stand to benefit in particular
  • Reduced environmental impacts of energy and transport services, such as global warming, local pollution and risks associated with nuclear power
  • A strengthened European economy, technology innovation dynamics and an increased creation of jobs within the framework of the Lisbon strategy
  • Delivery of good examples for other non EU countries, particular developing countries/countries in transition
