Details

Verco were commissioned by DECC to review the UK industrial energy efficiency evidence base. These are the reports from the 2-phase project to answer three key questions: what are the existing trends in industrial process energy use; what is the technical and economic energy efficiency potential over the coming decades; and what are the barriers to uptake of energy efficiency improvements, including the question of what evidence exists that quantifies or compares barriers.

The report on Phase I provides a survey of all significant evidence that contributes to answering the key questions.

The report on Phase II identifies and reviews the gaps in the current evidence base; sets out options for approaches to filling these gaps; and indicates where there are opportunities for making cost-effective improvements to the evidence base.
