The Energy Efficiency Unit has started in-depth study of five selected benefit areas:
- macro-economic benefits and jobs
- industrial productivity and competitiveness
- energy provider and consumer benefits and
- public budget impacts
A series of expert round-table discussions focusing on each benefit category is guiding this work, in order to share experience, discuss issues and challenges, and identify and assemble good practice approaches for each benefit category. The first in the series, the Roundtable on the Macroeconomic and Employment Impacts of Energy Efficiency, was held on 24 January.
The second, the Roundtable on the Health and Well-being Impacts of Energy Efficiency Policy will feature sessions focused on the relationship between energy efficiency improvements and indoor air quality, special issues related to vulnerable groups, and unravelling the harder-to-measure impacts on mental health and well-being as well as downstream social impacts. We will also discuss methodological issues and practical aspects of using health results for policy assessment and design. This roundtable of prominent health experts will help us to collate the latest insights on this subject, to feed into the ultimate output of this work stream – a handbook for policy makers on incorporating the multiple benefits of energy efficiency into policy decision-making.
