The Institute for Impact Assessment and Scientific Evaluation of Policy and Legislation
Revised study on the European Commission Impact Assessment on the revision of the Energy Efficiency Directive
23rd November 2017
The IAI has slightly revised its study scrutinising the Impact Assessment accompanying the European Commission legislative proposal, originally published on 18th September:
“Proposal for a Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council of Amending the Directive 2012/27/EU on Energy Efficiency” SWD (2016) 405 Final
and scrutinising the coherence between the Impact Assessment and the legislative proposal COM (2017) 761, published on 30th November 2016.
The study, authored by Jack Andreasen, Simon Godwin, Erik Akse and Fiona Dubernet, identified a number of discrepancies in the data and analysis alongside a continuing lack of transparency in the economic and energy modelling.
As part of the Institute's standard peer review process, scientific and factual comments on the content of the study are invited from stakeholders at any time to inform a potential revision.

On 20th July a draft version of the study was distributed to the European Commission, Members of the European Parliament involved in the legislative negotiations and interested expert stakeholders from industry and civil society, inviting comments and feedback.
Three responses was received and recorded in an annex to the final study. Changes were made subsequent to this feedback. A version showing tracked changes between the final version and the draft is available for download below
