Public policies aimed at increasing energy efficiency and reduing harmful emissions have relied mainly on non-market instruments such as codes, standards and direct install initiatives. This session looks at the complementary role of market instruments by presenting the results of these innovative market-based programs.
First, Cornelis and Wtzels present the Flemish combined heat and power (CHP) certification scheme. Certification schemes are believed to realize their targets at least cost by establishing a continuous cost competition among producers. This paper tests whether or not the conitions for an effective market mechanism were met by the Flemish CHP scheme.
Second, Larkin, Bucquet and Klien examine the Programme of Activities of the Clean Development Mechanism. Programmes of Activities are designed to be scalable frameworks rather than single projects. This paper examines several case studies including factors leading to success and constraints on success.
Third, Steele reviews the United Kingdom’s auction based capacity market. A key issue is the extent to which Electricity Demand Reduction is visible within the capacity market. The paper’s focus is on the application of a theory based evaluation approach to move beyond a ‘black box’ of change, which motivates many evaluations.
