Summary report on main findings
Matthias Pfaff, Rainer Walz,
In this summary report, the main findings of the macroeconomic analysis of energy efficiency measures in households in the EU-28 will be presented. It is part of the project CHEETAH (Changing Energy Efficiency Technology Adoption in Households). The CHEETAH project has the objectives of providing evidence-based input to energy efficiency policy-making by investigating the role of household decision-making on three levels:
On the micro level, the project provides empirical evidence of household energy- efficiency technology choices and responses to policy employing large-sample household surveys in eight EU member states and micro-econometric analyses based on stated preferences discrete choice experiments.
On the meso level, the project explores the impact of policies affecting household energy efficiency decision-making in the residential sector in Europe up to 2030. The project uses inputs from the micro-level analysis in order to improve the representation of investment decisions in energy demand modelling tools.
On the macro level, CHEETAH explores the long-term macroeconomic impacts of changes in micro-economic decision-making and of energy efficiency policy on employment, GDP and exports in the EU up to 2030.
The summary report is structured as follows. Chapter 3 presents the methodological approach used for modelling the macroeconomic effects of energy efficiency improvements. The results of the macroeconomic analysis are presented in Chapter 4, which closes with a discussion and interpretation of the results. A short conclusion is provided in Chapter 5.
