The Energy Charter Secretariat has published a report entitled "Impacts of Market Liberalisation on Energy Efficiency Policies and Programmes". The report is based on a study carried out under the Charter's auspices with financial support from the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy of Norway.
The aim of the report is to identify the possible effects of evolving competition in the energy sector of many national economies on energy efficiency, and to establish how energy efficiency policies and programmes should best be adapted to meet the challenges of energy market liberalisation. The report, which includes a number of case studies that highlight best practices in adapting energy efficiency policies to conditions of market liberalisation, was prepared also with the aim of supporting policy discussions on the issues raised within the forum of the International Energy Agency (IEA).
The publication "Impacts of Market Liberalisation on Energy Efficiency Policies and Programmes" is available in English and Russian.
