energy efficiency

Project status: 
Completed
Duration: 
Feb, 2010 - Jun, 2010
The objective of the project was to produce a report estimating the potential net employment impacts of a large-scale building energy retrofit programme in Hungary. While it is clear that such a programme would generate a substantial reduction of energy consumption in the country, this report quantifies an important co-benefit that can provide a new entry to the policy-making processes – the one on employment.
Junior researcher

I am a native Hungarian with an undergraduate in economics from University College for Modern Business Studies in Hungary, concurrently studying a Masters in Natural Resource Economics at Copenhagen University in Denmark and the MESPOM program at CEU.

Currently working for 3CSEP as a junior researcher on a project estimating employement benefits originating from a large scale deep retrofit program in Hungary.

Fuel poverty in Hungary: research report released

Fuel poverty is an important issue for Hungary from several perspectives – it is estimated that this problem causes approximately 1500-2500 deaths in Hungary – but the topic was not widely researched in the past. On the initiative of the Center for Climate Change and Sustainable Energy Policy (3CSEP) of Central European University (CEU), and the Hungarian NGO Védegylet (Protect the Future), in cooperation with the Environmental Justice Working Group of Védegylet (Védegylet Környezeti Igazságosság Munkacsoport) some noteworthy research results have now been released.

Energy-efficient retrofit of Hungary's biggest residential building completed

How can the energy efficiency of big panel buildings be improved and what are the economic, financial and social implications of such major retrofits? - These questions are at the core of the EU-funded Staccato research project, to which CEU's Center for Climate Change and Sustainable Energy Policy (3CSEP) is contributing alongside several partner institutions from different European countries.

Second volume of Energy Efficiency special issue published

In early November 2009, the second volume of "Energy Efficiency: How Far Does It Get Us In Controlling Climate Change?", the Energy Efficiency journal's Special Issue edited by 3CSEP director Diana Ürge-Vorsatz together with Bert Metz, has come out of press.
