APRAISE Final Conference 24th September 2014, Brussels, Belgium"What Role for Targets in EU Climate and Energy Policy? -Lessons from the APRAISE project for Improved Environmental Policy Making"

The APRAISE Final Conference "What Role for Targets in EU Climate and Energy Policy? - Lessons from the APRAISE project for Improved Environmental Policy Making" was implemented on the 24th of September 2014, in Brussels, Belgium. The event which was organized by CEPS, in cooperation, on content organization, with JIN, drew on the results of the APRAISE project to assess how past experience in environmental policy making can contribute to more informed decisions for the future. In particular, the conference highlighted that climate and energy policies are not formulated within an isolated policy context but implemented in existing (market) systems. Improved understanding of these systems contributes to policy effectiveness and efficiency as it brings to the fore possible policy interactions and mechanisms behind long-term EU-wide targets. The conference drew on the APRAISE case studies in the area of renewable energy and energy efficiency policies, providing for a better understanding of the mechanisms of environmental policy and thus giving insights into how inefficiencies of environmental policy making can be reduced and target setting on the EU level improved.
