ABSTRACT

The overarching objective of EU-MERCI is to grow the energy effi ciency in the European industry, by exploiting and expanding the opportunity offered by the Effi ciency Obligation Schemes and/or Alternative measures imposed to the Member States (MSs) by the 2012/27/EU Directive and, specifi cally, by the Art. 7 of the EED: “Energy effi ciency obligation schemes”.

To this extent, EU-MERCI will identify best practices of implementation of energy effi ciency projects, drawing from the experience of thousands of real cases of application of Energy Effi ciency Schemes (EESs) in Europe. The project will propose exemplary energy effi ciency projects, common procedures and shared methods to assess and demonstrate the achieved energy savings and supporting tools to assist industries in effectively putting into practice energy effi ciency improvements of the processes and in the technical/economic reporting of the savings, in application of the obligation schemes and/or alternative measures adopted in the respective MS. EU-MERCI will help industry actors, who want to improve the energy effi ciency of a process, to overcome experienced barriers; to maximize the technical and economic benefi ts; to simplify their burden in the preparation of possibly associated access-to-incentive demands. The goal is to answer questions like:

What are the most effective actions improving the effi ciency in a particular process or industry sector? How to specifi cally implement them? What are the most promising technologies? What is the effi ciency improvement attainable with each action? How to measure, monitor and report the savings? What are the associated costs? EU-MERCI, with recommendation and specifi c dissemination actions, will also assist policy makers and public authorities in the assessment of the effectiveness and transparency of the mechanisms, giving them also a picture of the technologies and effi ciency improvements to incentive.

Lessons learned from countries with consolidated energy effi ciency schemes in place will be transferred to countries where EE measures are less advanced.
