IMPROVING POLICY MEASURES AND TAKING THE GUESS-WORK OUT OF DEMAND MODELS

BRISKEE ended in 2017. Using the empirical results on investment behaviour from a survey covering 15 000 households in eight EU countries, the study found that the modelled EU energy demand by 2030 would be significantly lower than previously believed. The survey results also give guidance to policy makers how they can develop more effective policy interventions. 

Key take-aways for better and bolder implementation

How has BRISKEE reached the conclusions that the energy-demand could be lower than in current EU scenarios? The three levels of analysis form a logical “ladder” of analysis, starting with empirical research on households’ investment decisions (micro level), following with energy system modelling for the EU residential sector (meso-level), based on that empirical research, and finally, looking at the effects on the economy as a whole such as GDP, growth, employment and energy security (macro-level).
