Technical Assistance Services: Assess the Energy Savings Potentials at National and European Level


Brussels, Belgium, 07 November 2017

Objective and purpose of the service contract

The main purpose of this study is to analyse and quantitatively assess in depth the remaining cost-effective energy-saving potential, and energy saving options across sectors, for the EU as a whole and at MSs level, and to identify how to best address them in consideration of the EU energy and climate policy targets for 2030, with elements up to 2040 and 2050.

The general objective is therefore that of providing technical information to national policy makers and to the European Commission, to better orient the decision-making in identifying the energy-efficiency measures which could achieve the highest savings cost-effectively and are most adapted to the national circumstances. The contractor should also identify areas for which further assessments will be necessary.

The assessment should take into account the existing policies and programmes in place and planned for 2020 and 2030. National Energy Efficiency Action Plans and Long-Term Building strategies as well as the existing (draft) Integrated Plans for 2030, to the extent they're available, are therefore essential elements for such an assessment.

Description of services

The following section describes the requirements concerning the scope of this work, which involves providing the Commission with:

  • TASK 1: Elaborate a methodology to assess the technical and economic potential for energy savings at national MSs level and EU-wide, within a 2030 time perspective (with elements up to 2050);

  • TASK 2: Quantitatively assess the energy savings potentials across sectors at national (EU28) and EU level (with elements up to 2050);

  • TASK 3: Provide recommendations for policies and measures to implement at national and EU-level to address and exploit the untapped energy savings potential, in consideration of the existing programmes and policies already in place or planned for 2020 and 2030 and of the 2030 energy efficiency targets.

Duration of the tasks

The duration of the tasks shall not exceed 14 months. This period is calculated in calendar days.
