Understanding the gaps and addressing the potentials of energy sufficiency in “catching-up” European economies


Understanding the Gaps and Addressing the Potentials of Energy Sufficiency in “Catching-up” European Economies

This paper by EUKI project CACTUS – Consolidating Ambitious Climate Targets with End-Use Sufficiency addresses reasons and ways to bridge the gap between energy efficiency and energy sufficiency in policy making. With a focus on two “catching-up” economies in Central and Eastern Europe, Hungary and Lithuania, it examines the role of energy sufficiency in strengthening climate mitigation actions. The goal is to pave the way for the development of sufficiency policies by raising the awareness of policymakers on the sufficiency concept and its mitigation role.

Please Don’t Let Them Be Misunderstood!

Mystery shopping is a convenient tool that is gaining momentum in the finance sector to understand professionals’ behavior in front of clients. It’s becoming common practice for European regulators dealing with consumer protection issues to integrate mystery shopping in their toolkit.

The results, presented in the report “Please Don’t Let Them Be Misunderstood!”, give an overview of various practices of financial advisors across Europe and challenges the upcoming regulation’s capability to address the most common pitfalls.

To enable financial advisors to better take into account the sustainability goals of their clients in the future, the EUKI project Sustainable Finance and Consumer Protection conducted a survey in six European countries. In its latest report, “What do your clients actually want?”, results from the survey were used to build estimates of potential market shares for different sustainable finance products and thus want clients actually want.

Mapping Solar Potential in Pilot Municipalities


Mapping Solar Potential in Pilot Municipalities

This report of the EUKI project Solar Adria describes different models and methodologies for solar potential mapping. One of the goals of the project is potential replicability of its approach in other municipalities of the Adriatic region. Therefore, Solar Adria summarised the described methodology in several steps to guide the interested municipalities through the process of solar potential map development.

Feasibility Studies for Installing Photovoltaic Power Plants on Municipality Buildings


Feasibility Studies for Installing Photovoltaic Power Plants on Municipality Buildings

EUKI project Solar Adria accelerates solar power development in Adriatic municipalities. The objectives of the project are to explore on a municipal level how stakeholders perceive and contribute to energy transition through solar development. Solar Adria provides solar potential maps for target municipalities and creates a matchmaking platform to connect any interested investors with the municipality administration and other target groups.

The project co-develops two solar projects, one in each pilot municipality, by providing technical and economic information. Implementing organisation Energy Institute Hrvoje Požar (EIHP) performed four feasibility studies for photovoltaic power plants in Starigrad in Croatia and Koper in Slovenia.
