COMBI-researcher Souran Chatterjee presented first draft productivity impacts from the project at the World Sustainable Energy Days 2017 conference in Wels/Austria.
Full economic assessment is required to understand the full potential of any energy policy. However, today these assessments often do not include important factors such as co-benefits/multiple impacts of any energy policy. The inclusion of additional impact into decision-making analysis may influence policy maker to design a better policy portfolio. Most of the time, multiple impacts of energy efficiency policy are not incorporated into ex-ante policy analysis due to the absence of mature methodologies. Therefore, this research contributes to the methodological tool box by proposing solutions to the key methodological challenges of aggregation of multiple impacts including the risks of double counting.
