Energy, Climate Change

The Commission and European regulators are discussing, especially in the context of implementing the EU’s energy and climate change policy objective endorsed by the European Council on 8/9 March 2007, the applicability of a number of potential policy instruments in Europe, including the so-called “Top runner approach” that exists in Japan.

In this position paper, Orgalime, after analysing the Japanese top runner, presents our industry’s view for a European Top Runner Approach on the basis of existing EU instruments, which is both, ambitious and in line with the EU’s objectives to reduce emissions by 20% by 2020, to improve energy efficiency by 20% by 2020 and to increase the share of renewable energies by 20% by the same date.
