Energy EFFiciency and LOad curve impacts of COMmercial Development in competitive markets

The EU/SAVE project EFFLOCOM started July 2002 and was completed June 2004. Project partners from five countries, Norway, Denmark, Finland, France and England have been working in the project. The results are based on specific studies and six national projects that were included as EFFLOCOM pilots. Additional information from Sweden has been provided via a Swedish subcontractor.

The project has been seeking solutions to remove barriers to energy efficiency through research on customer response to different market based customer services in deregulated markets.

More specifically the objectives of the proposed action were to:

  • Establish specifications for load profiles in deregulated markets while taking into account the interaction between electricity and other energy resources.
  • Quantify the potential for peak power demand reductions in competitive electricity markets by the means of market solutions, dynamic pricing options, new technology solutions and information services.
  • Quantify the energy efficiency potential in competitive electricity markets by the means of market solutions, dynamic pricing options, new technology solutions and information services.
  • Determine which policy actions are the most efficient in removing existing barriers to energy efficiency.
