1 European Commission: Environment Directorate General Slide: 1 Linking sustainable energy use to regional economic development Open days 2006 Erik Tang DG Environment EU Commission

2 European Commission: Environment Directorate General Slide: 2 EU aspiration: Limit the increase in global temperature increase to 2°C above pre- industrial levels 2°C

3 European Commission: Environment Directorate General Slide: 3

4 European Commission: Environment Directorate General Slide: 4 Energy efficient = competitive

5 European Commission: Environment Directorate General Slide: 5 Green Paper: A European Strategy for Sustainable, Competitive and Secure Energy The challenges: l Increasing energy prices – based on increasing demand from fast growing economies l Europes import dependency from 50% today to 70 % in years l Reserves of oil and gas concentrated in few and politically unstable countries l Competitiveness of European industry l Climate change

6 European Commission: Environment Directorate General Slide: 6 Multiple benefits of energy efficiency & renewables limit greenhouse gas emissions counter increases and fluctuations in energy prices greater energy security can boost to the competitiveness of NMS economies less fossil-fuel dependent economies do not entail an impediment to economic growth improve regional economies as imports are replaced by local production

7 European Commission: Environment Directorate General Slide: 7 Samsoe – renewable energy island l Projects established since 1997: m 4 district heating plants supplying 6 villages m individual RE-heating plants m 300 energy saving projects in individual buildings m 11 land-based windmills m 12 offshore windmills
