2nd Capacity Building Workshop in the Nethelands
The 2nd Capacity Building Workshop in the Netherlands took place in the Hague (Nieuwspoort) on the 16 June 2016. Fifteen (15) people took part in the meeting: from institutional bodies (Ministry of Economics), from industrial and trade associations and obliged parties or market operators (association of energy companies, TSOs, distributors, ESCOs, energy managers, association of insulation materials, association of buildings). NRP chaired the event, organised in cooperation with Vlasis Oikonomou (JIN).
The structure of the meeting was mainly on presenting key lessons relevant to the EEO introduction in the Netherlands (Vlasis Oikonomou), options for the energy retailers (EnergieNed) and discussions on these issues. A detailed discussion allowed market operators to highlight issues and possible solutions related to the proposal for the introduction of the EEO scheme in the Netherlands. The most important discussion was based on the findings from other countries as presented by Vlasis Oikonomou, focussing mainly on the types of obligations, design characteristics, costs of schemes and cost recovery options of these schemes.
