Catalysing a Green Recovery: Opportunities through Climate Change and Energy Efficiency Action

PhD student

Dr. Barabanova completed her doctoral studies at CEU. Her research is focused on climate justice.

Project status: 
Completed
Duration: 
Oct, 2009 - Oct, 2010
The project analyzed energy efficiency governance worldwide. This included institutions and the types of resources available at all levels of government which work to improve energy efficiency. 3CSEP covered the Eastern European and ex-USSR region within this global project on behalf of the International Energy Agency (IEA).
Project status: 
Completed
Duration: 
Apr, 2008 - Sep, 2008
The aim of the project is to measure and collect standby power data from a range of common household appliances on display in retail stores in two Central Eastern European countries – Hungary and the Czech Republic.
Project status: 
Ongoing
Duration: 
Aug, 2009 - May, 2012
Scenarios of energy saving and greenhouse gas mitigation potentials (and associated costs) in the world’s buildings are modelled in the context of the Global Energy Assessment (GEA).
Project status: 
Completed
Duration: 
Jan, 2006 - Jul, 2008
The project provides detailed and reliable know-how on the electricity consumption structure and its use by purpose in different types of buildings; develops a harmonised methodology for electricity metering, survey and analysis; conducts a pilot campaign based on this methodology; and models impacts of possible energy saving policies.
Project status: 
Completed
Duration: 
Jan, 2006 - Dec, 2008
The project developed robust scenarios for CFL (energy-efficient lightbulbs) promotional campaigns on European, national and regional levels. At the same time the project aimed to promote a quality charter to assure that the CFL that are marketed and promoted can deliver savings which last over time and meet customer expectations of high quality lighting. The ultimate objective of this project was to substantially increase the efficiency of residential lighting.
Project status: 
Completed
Duration: 
Jan, 2006 - Jul, 2008
The project provides a contribution to an increased understanding of electricity consumption in the EU27 households for different types of equipment, including analysis of consumers' behaviour and comfort levels, and identifies demand trends. The project also assesses potential electricity savings in the residential sector in Europe and investigates to what extent they can be achieved using existing means. Special attention is given to stand-by consumption. To this end a combination of metering and surveying techniques is used.
