BRISKEE ANALYSIS AND MODELLING ON THREE LEVELS: MICRO, MESO AND MACRO

The conclusions have been made for three analytical levels: micro, meso and macro.

MICRO LEVEL FINDINGS

The detailed results from the (micro level) survey themselves can help policy makers design more effective programmes and tools for implementing energy efficiency in households.

Key Messages from the micro-level analysis

For more detailed policy conclusions from the micro-level, see BRISKEE's micro-level pages.

MESO LEVEL FINDINGS

However, the project team took the analysis beyond behavioural results, and analysed the outcome on three levels: the micro-level survey data were linked with model-based analysis to understand the implications for energy demand.

On the meso-level (i.e. the level of bottom-up energy system models), the results suggest that taking specific factors behind Implicit Discount Rates into account leads to additional economic energy savings in BRISKEE New Actor-Related Scenario NAMS. This scenario integrates findings from the micro-level analysis and assumes that policy measures are applied that affect the discount rates and decision behaviour of low-income households.

MACRO LEVEL FINDINGS

BRISKEE explored the long-term macro-economic impacts of changes in micro-economic decision-making and of energy efficiency policy on employment, GDP and exports in the EU up to 2030. Our innovative modelling approach in BRISKEE linked a macro-economic model (ASTRA-EC) with the energy systems models.
