dc.description.abstractThis Working Document summarises the results of the assessment of the effectiveness and economic efficiency of different support instrument options to foster the market penetration of RES-H/C in the UK. For two selected policy options related costs (mainly public transfer costs) and benefits (e.g. growth in RES-H/C capacities, avoided fuel costs, reduced GHG emissions) will be assessed. In addition it will be analysed how the different policy options will influence the development of different RES-H/C technologies. Moreover, this working step covers an estimation of the transaction costs (in particular those resulting on the authorities' side) and the direct (gross) employment effect that can be linked to the two analysed support policy options. This Working Document is based on the description and qualitative assessment of selected support instrument options as described by Working Document D9. Similar documents have also been prepared relating to the other countries/regions targeted within this project.en_GB

dc.descriptionA Working Document prepared as part of the IEE project "Policy development for improving RES-H/C penetration in European Member States (RES-H Policy)"en_GB
dc.descriptionThe RES-H Policy project: The project "Policy development for improving RES-H/C penetration in European Member States (RES-H Policy)" aims at assisting Member State governments in preparing for the implementation of the forthcoming Directive on Renewables as far as aspects related to renewable heating and cooling (RES-H/C) are concerned. Member States are supported in setting up national sector specific 2020/2030 RES-H/C targets. Moreover the project initiates participatory National Policy Processes in which selected policy options to support RES-H/C are qualitatively and quantitatively assessed. Based on this assessment the project develops tailor made policy options and recommendations as to how to best design a support framework for increased RES-H/C penetration in national heating and cooling markets. The target countries/regions of the project comprise Austria, Greece, Lithuania, The Netherlands, Poland and UK – countries that represent a variety in regard of the framework conditions for RES-H/C. On the European level the projects assesses options for coordinating and harmonising national policy approaches. This results in common design criteria for a general EU framework for RES-H/C policies and an overview of costs and benefits of different harmonised strategies.
