Transferring global experience of “efficiency first” to the EU: enefirst report

This report, delivered by the enefirst H2020 project, highlights 16 international case examples of efficiency first in practice.

Learning from international experience is key to helping policymakers in the EU and its Member States establish a level playing field between demand and supply-side resources, and thus embed the efficiency first decision-making principle in EU policy.

However, the report highlights that truly putting demand-side resources on equal footing with supply side infrastructures, in all relevant instances, will require a custom set of policy and regulatory instruments that go beyond fragmented international practices.
