In the transition to sustainable energy systems the international dimension is obviously paramount. CE Delft’s work in this area is concerned primarily with European energy and climate policy, which drives numerous national policy developments as well as strategic decisions and investments by market parties.
On this theme CE Delft works on European policy trends for clients like the European Commission, the European Environmental Agency, EEA, and NGOs. We also support national governments and companies with research and consultancy on European policy developments of particular relevance to them.
European legislation lays down targets, standards and criteria for energy efficiency, renewable energy and CO2 emissions. In addition, the energy infrastructure of individual member states in north-west Europe is becoming ever more integrated. Policies in this area are currently very much on the move. While current policy for the period up to 2030 is being rolled out, efforts are already underway to speed up progress by further tightening of EU energy and climate targets as well as by other means.
With our robust know-how, experience and network in the European energy field we support both European and national clients. In this work we generally collaborate with our colleagues working on other themes, in the realm of energy supply , industry and mobility, or economic themes.
With our extensive knowledge of national and European policies and our technical expertise on energy markets, we’re well-placed to analyse and compare European policy options and draw up scenarios for greening specific sectors.
