Milan, Italy, 22 October, 2008

A workshop on: White Certificates: the Italian experiences gained in Regulation, Monitoring & Verification and Electricity Market contexts, was hosted by: CESI Ricerca, Milan, Italy, on 22 October, 2008.

Click HERE for agenda

Italy has been practising a White Certificates scheme for four years. The Italian involved actors are:

- The Ministry of Economic Development (MSE) - (the policy maker)
- The Regulatory Authority for Electricity and Gas (AEEG) - (who set up the rules and the guidelines for the scheme)
- CESI Ricerca - one of the main contributors for the energy efficiency procedures for the eligible projects
- The Electricity Market Operator (GME) - responsible for handling the trade of White Certificates
- The National Agency (ENEA) - responsible for Monitoring & Verification of the energy efficiency projects.
- Obligation Bound Operators - (responsible for gaining white certificates)
- Eligible Agents - (they can perform energy efficiency projects awarded with white certificates)

This workshop was aimed at pulling together representative people coming from most of these organisations. The speakers updated the audience with proper details about gained experiences, attained results, faced inconveniences in the technical, legislative and market sectors and actions taken to overcome them. The second part allowed UK and Australia to give up-to-date information about their schemes, which showed many features similar to the Italian one. This session also allowed EC to express their general views on opportunities and problems connected to a EU-wide scheme of wide certificates.

The workshop was considered to be a very special opportunity to be informed by the voices of the directly involved parties not only of the principles of the Italian scheme (maybe they begin to be quite well known), but also of the implementation activities and the actual operational problems that have been handled and solved.

The workshop was hosted by: SenterNovem, Netherlands. logo senternovem.JPG

Everyone loves DSM

Central to the workshop discussion was the issue of optimising the knowledge generated from DSM and setting priorities for new projects. The day was divided up into two sessions: plenary presentations (morning) and workshops (afternoon).

To view the list of participants click HERE

The workshop was attended by 30 participants from the Netherlands and abroad and consisted of DSM Executive Committee members, respresentatives from industry, government, research and knowledge institutions.

Presentations made at the plenary session:

1. Energy Services in Practice -Saving Energy and Directly Earn Money - presented by G. Kempen, Essent, Netherlands.

2. Options for a White Certificates Scheme in the Netherlands - presented by V. Oikonomou, RUG, Netherlands.

3. Smart Metering - Automatic Meter Management - A Customer's Perspective - presented by Hilbrand Does, Oxxio, Netherlands.

4. Monitoring Information for EU Reporting - presented by Harry Vreuls, SenterNovem, Netherlands.

Three workshops were held and were led by SenterNovem moderators.

There was overall agreement that the marketing of the DSM agreement products was an area for improvement. Currently the information often remains within a small group of Experts and does not receive the exposure that it deserves. Within the individual workshops the following areas were considered of the highest priority for future attention:

WS 1 - Customers

WS 2 - Governments

WS 3 - ESCO

  • Brand energy efficiency
  • Globally consistent economic fungible instruments
  • Branding
  • Labelling of all appliances
  • UN energy policy needed
  • Investigate barriers
  • Inform the public
    - TV campaign
    - Computer game
  • Develop school programs
  • Educate by sector (focus/tailormade)

 


 


  • Inform financial institutions about ESCO – ensure financing

Demand Response Workshop

Demand Response helps in the upkeeping of the power balance in the Nordic market, especially the peak load situation. It is a central factor promoting the functionality of the Nordic electricity market. In Finland the Demand Response Forum was established in 2004 to promote Demand Response in Finland.

The objective of the workshop was to exchange information on the situation of Demand Response in Finland as well as to disseminate information on Demand Response inside the IEA DSM Agreement to the stakeholders.

A New Dawn for Demand-Side Measures: Perspectives, Strategies and Experiences.

The objective of the workshop/seminar was: (1) to introduce a Norwegian audience to the IEA and the IEA DSM Programme in particular; (2) provide introduction to Norwegian energy demand management activities: policy, experiences with use of measures, project results and enabling technology provider perspective to the IEA DSM members; (3) post-deregulated energy sector represents new set of challenges: responsibilities polarized and funding for activities harder to identify and obtain; (4) Future? - establish Norwegian Energy demand Network to share concerns, expereinces, project results and co-ordinate national/international participation and hopefully pool resources; and (5) re-introduce Energy demand Management on the agenda and provide new focus on current and future challenges in developing and implementing effective measures and technologies to achieve goals.

"Energy Services for Tomorrow - The Future of DSM"

When the DSM Programme started it had three main areas of work - Policy (analysis of applications), Technology and Measures. The exchange of experiences gained from these three categories is crucial if we want to make the best of our resources.

Events during 2002 seem to have given some new breath to the DSM concept. First of all were the close calls showing that energy systems both in a technical and in an institutional sense, and sometimes both, are vulnerable. California was the most spectacular example. Secondly the concerns over environment and climate has made it obvious that, as far as energy impact goes, measures must cover both the supply and the demand side and that simultaneous treatment of the opportunities opens up for better solutions. Since the DSM concept is built on the interaction between the two, it also offers some good "readymade" chances for analysis and measures.

There seems to be several reasons to ensure that the DSM concept is developed in light of new Tasks and new institutional arrangements. This workshop was structured to deal with and develop the views on these issues.

Energy Efficiency Certificate Trading

Certificate trading is one of the "new breed" of policy measures designed to combine the "guaranteed results" of regulation with the economic efficiency of market-based trading mechanisms. Several schemes have been developed for the "greening" of energy supply, and recently also an Italian scheme has been developed for efficient use of energy.

The workshop on Energy Efficiency Certificate Trading provided a forum for exchanging experiences about this new instrument and enabled a better appreciation of the scope for wider use of this novel approach.
