Towards a Regulatory Methodology for Energy Efficiency in Gas Networks

Abstract: 

The report gives an outline of a possible regulatory methodology for the enhancement of energy efficiency of gas networks at the European Union Level. The report adresses several related measures and the interaction with related energy systems and the development of new technologies. Article 15 of the Energy Efficiency Directive requests for the definition of a methodology that Member States could implement towards a more efficient network. This report aims to reply to this demand by consulting relevant stakeholders, evaluating Member States network strategies and proposing regulatory and policy measures to be implemented by the countries.
