Energy Efficiency And The "triple 20" European Policy: Lessons Drawn From The French Case

Abstract : This paper questions the relevance of the announced energy efficiency target (i.e. translated as energy consumption savings) as leverage for the GHG mitigation in the French case. We explore the impact of both primary and final energy consumption savings, when combined with a 20% reduction of CO2 emissions by 2020. This is done through long-term planning exercises using Markal/Times modeling tool for France. The results show the impact of energy consumption savings on the future energy mix. This is discussed through the “French model” framework, where a unique energy policy has lead the country to rely on the highest nuclear power share worldwide.
