Frontier Economics, in partnership with strategy consultancy Ylios, has modelled the costs and benefits of investing in a range of energy efficiency measures in the housing and office building sectors in France. The study, for a number of French companies, associations and energy market stakeholders, considers in turn the contribution of each measure to meeting policy targets to reduce energy consumption, energy bills, carbon emissions and national energy dependency.
The results show that the ranking of measures varies significantly depending on the choice of policy objective. This suggests that the optimal roll-out of energy efficiency measures at a national level can only be derived for a more focused set of policy objectives. The analysis also demonstrates the wide distribution of benefits for individual energy efficiency measures across building types and current heating fuel. This also points to the need for roll-out policies to target specific and tailored segments of the building stock.
Frontier regularly advises public sector clients on policy issues relating to the energy sector and climate change.
