Energy conservation for a sustainable energy supply

At the request of GasTerra, LTO Glaskracht, Cogen NL and the Netherlands Society for Nature and Environment (Natuur & Milieu) CE Delft has investigated the options available for improving energy efficiency in the Netherlands. As detailed in this report, there is still substantial scope for reducing energy consumption in the production and use of energy carriers, much of it not only attractive from the perspective of society as a whole but also profitable for the actors concerned.

By exploiting these opportunities, sustainability targets can be cost-effectively met. The report examines why so much potential is still not being utilised and how this can be remedied. Following a description of the potential for energy conservation, a package of smart, effective policies is recommended to secure.
