Improving energy efficiency

From IMAGE

Jump to: navigation, search
Description: Exogenously set improvement in efficiency. Such improvements can be introduced for the submodels that focus on particular technologies, for example, in transport, heavy industry and households submodels.
Is implemented in: Energy demand


Associated policy response component

Component: Air pollution and energy policies
Page: Air pollution and energy policies/Policy issues

Effects of this policy intervention on components

Component: Energy demand

Effect : More efficient use of final energy, change in end use technologies, which leads to lower energy demand.

Component: Emissions

Effect :

Component: Energy supply

Effect : Efficiency improvements result in a decreased energy demand, resulting in less need for energy supply.

Component: Energy conversion

Effect : Efficiency improvements result in less energy input at an equal energy output of conversion technologies. This results in a lower need for conversion capacity.
