Join the lively debate on how streamlined energy savings calculations could support fuel switching between conventional and electric vehicles, and how industry could benefit.
One of the medium-term actions of the REPowerEU plan is the proposal of regulatory measures to increase energy efficiency in the transport sector. Accelerated electrification of corporate fleets would be an effective way to achieving this.
This workshop (in-person, invitation-only), organized by streamSAVE (Horizon 2020 ) and hosted by AVERE, takes a deep dive into the question how standardized savings calculations under the Energy Efficiency Directive could support the fuel switching between conventional and electric vehicles, and how industry could benefit from this.
Key note speakers from the European Commission, corporate fleet owners, leasing companies and car manufacturers will set the scene, followed by a lively moderated discussion with all participants. During lunch you’ll get ample opportunity for networking with key stakeholders from policy and industry.

During the first half of the H2020 project streamSAVE, multiple activities were organised to support countries in developing savings estimations under Art.3 and Art.7 of the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED). A Guidance was developed to assist EU member states in more accurately calculating savings for a set of priority energy efficiency actions. Amongst these, the savings actions related to electric vehicles (EVs) were singled out as the highest priority by the project’s stakeholders. Adding to that, industry is facing unprecedented energy costs and seeking support to accelerate the electrification of car fleets. At policy level, policy instruments targeting the transport sector have traditionally been focused on reducing CO2 emissions, while clear provisions on (well-to-wheel) energy efficiency would drastically reduce the energy consumption of this sector.
This workshop brings together stakeholders from policy and industry to identify and materialise leverage of the streamSAVE project results for the transport sector.
The objective is to
- Explain how standardised savings calculations can help the fuel switching between conventional and electric vehicles, and why companies should be involved in this process; brainstorm on gap analysis and identify potential next steps
- Map interlinkages with other policy instruments (Energy Efficiency First Guidelines for Transport, CO2 Emission Standards for Cars and Vans, AFIR, ETS for transport) and what is needed to add a focus on (well-to-wheel) energy efficiency next to CO2 criteria
