Abstract [en]

Energy programs including energy audits are cited as one of the most promising means to increase energy efficiency and reduce GHG emissions. From a public point of view, the cost-effectiveness of an energy efficiency program is of major importance if a program is to be considered or not. The aim of this paper is to outline results from the two largest Swedish energy efficiency programs, project Highland and the PFE (Program for improving energy efficiency in energy-intensive industry), in terms of the program’s cost-effectiveness, in order to answer the research question where public money towards energy end-use programs should be placed from a cost-effectiveness point of view. Project Highland, involved small- and medium-sized industrial and service and sales enterprises, and the PFE involved electricity-intensive industries. Results indicate that the cost-effectiveness differs substantially between the two programs, and that the most cost-effective sector to target is small- and medium sized and non-energy-intensive companies using energy audits. The next most cost effective programs are LTAs (Long-Term Agreements) towards energy-intensive companies and, followed by energy audits towards small- and medium-sized and non energy-intensive service and sales companies. Analytic generalization of the paper’s results indicates that a clean-cut energy audit program towards small- and medium-sized and non-energy-intensive industries is more cost-effective than an LTA towards energy-intensive industries.
