Recently started, REFEREE aims to analyse the non-energy benefits deriving from investments and policies on energy efficiency in the context of the European Green Deal. In particular, we intend to develop a targeted integrated set of analytical tools, from the macroeconomic to the micro level to be used by consumers and businesses, for their quantitative analysis of the non-energy impacts of energy efficiency measures.
We are now shaping a Policy Advisory Group which aims to bring together experts and stakeholders who will accompany the development of these analytical tools from the initial design to their final launch and roll-out.
The decision support tool we are going to design and develop will help assess all the benefits other than energy savings emerging from the implementation of energy efficiency measures.
The tool will aim to support decision-makers at municipal, regional and national level but also investors, and interested households, to measure different positive gains from energy efficiency, such as improvements in health, bills reduction, energy poverty alleviation, job creation, economic growth and environmental benefits.
