Expectations are that broadband equipment will contribute considerably to the electricity consumption of households in European Community in the near future. Depending on the penetration level, the specifications of the equipment and the requirements of the service provider, a total European consumption of at least 50 TWh per year was estimated for the year 2015 for broadband equipment.

The Information and Communication Technology (ICT) sector including data centres generates up to 2% of the global CO2 emissions and data centres are estimated to have the fastest growing carbon footprint from across the whole ICT sector, mainly due to new business such as the cloud computing and the rapid growth of the use of Internet services.

Report: Energy Sustainability in the...

Several countries in the world are currently engaged in an energy transition entailing a massive shift to renewable energies and a progressive increase in the efficiency of processes whereby energy inputs are used by economies. Researchers and policy makers working in this area rightly describe this energy transition as highly necessary and capable of contributing to the environmental, economic and social sustainability of human activities in important ways.

Building Energy Performance and...

This report has been produced by the Joint Research Centre (JRC) as a joint activity of several JRC Units. The purpose of this report is to provide insight in the development of methods for the assessment of energy performance of buildings based on geo-location data. The JRC has studied internal documents, project reports together with relevant information available in the public domain.

One-stop-shops for energy renovations...

The “One-stop-shops for energy renovations of buildings” report is the exploratory review of case studies of past and current one-stop-shops (OSS) with a primary focus on the EU Member States. One-stop-shops are transparent and accessible advisory tools from the client perspective and new, innovative business models from the supplier perspective.

Status of LED-Lighting world market in...

Lighting is responsible for about 15% of global electricity consumption. LEDs are a new technologies introduced in the market over the last 10 years. LED offers a very high efficiency compared to traditional lamps and higher lighting quality compared to fluorescent lighting in the non-residential sector. Through technology development and energy efficiency policies the LED lighting is fast penetrating the lighting market, offering energy and cost savings and higher lighting quality.

Guidebook How to develop a Sustainable...

This guidebook provides guidance to local authorities in the elaboration and implementation of their Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plan (SECAP). This document supports local authorities in defining the key elements of the initiative, in building a Baseline Emission Inventory (BEI), performing a Risk and Vulnerabilities Assessment (RVA), and the guides them in the elaboration of the actions included in the plan.

Renewables in the EU: the support framework towards a single energy market

The need to integrate higher shares of renewables in the EU energy sector brings into discussion the way the renewable technologies/sources have been supported to date. Support schemes are currently the major drivers for investment in the EU electricity sector, while investments in grid assets are driven mainly by regulation that guarantees investors a reasonable return on equity. The support price-based scheme is mainly determined from administrative procedures based on the main indicators such as deployment targets and costs of renewable generation.

Energy Consumption and Energy...

This report aims at showing the present status of energy consumption in the EU-28, in the four main energy consuming sectors: residential, tertiary, transport and industry. During the last years, there have been efforts by the European Union to cut down on energy consumption and improve energy efficiency. From 2000 to 2014, there have been various initiatives that aim at reducing final energy consumption. Therefore, the report demonstrates the energy consumption progress from 2000 to 2015 in the mentioned four sectors.
