Increasing energy efficiency is the quickest and least costly way of addressing energy security, environmental and economic challenges.

The updated 25 recommendations cover a robust portfolio of policies that member and non-member countries should consider in the context of their energy economies. This portfolio includes policies to cost-effectively increase energy efficiency by establishing market signals to motivate effective action, accelerate the introduction of new technologies, and strengthen and enforce minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) for appliances, lighting, equipment and building energy codes.

The IEA estimates that if implemented globally without delay, the proposed actions could save as much as 7.6 gigatonnes (Gt) CO2/year by 2030 – almost 1.5 times current US annual CO2 emissions. In 2010, this corresponded to energy savings of more than 82 EJ/year by 2030, or 17% of the current annual worldwide energy consumption.

Energy interactive computer system

Interactive computing system for decision support of long-term prognosis on energy sector development

Development of interactive computing system for decision support of long-term prognosis (further named SYSTEM) on demand in primary energy sources, electricity and heat energy and for optimal planning of putting into operation of energy units and for minimising of cost on electricity and heat energy production.

Project SYSTEM will develop an integrated interactive computing system for effective support of decision making for energy sector development based on systems analysis approach.

SYSTEM is an economic model generator for local, national or multi-regional energy systems, which provides a technology-rich basis for estimating energy dynamics over a long-term, multi-period time horizon. It is usually applied to the analysis of the entire energy sector, but may also apply to study in detail single sectors (e.g. the electricity and district heat sector).

The proposed project aims at providing a fully consistent framework for a secure energy provision, which is at the same time environmentally friendly and affordable. The conclusions of the project must result in policy recommendations for the Government to develop optimal energy system. Within the framework of the proposed project the technologies, actions, strategies and corresponding political decisions are analyzed and evaluated in accordance with the problem of reducing the energy intensity in the context of national energy system, ecology and social ambience that expects consideration of energy system as a whole, including all modern fuel-energy technologies of transformation, implemented in energy sectors.

  • The SYSTEM will be ready to use on web distributed calculating technology such as cloud SaaS systems.
  • The strategic objective addressed by this project is to provide the Government with coherent guidelines and recommendations to optimise the future nature of energy provision and the electricity generation mix in the country so as to guarantee an affordable, clean and reliable, i.e., ‘sustainable’, energy supply system.
