No-regret Potentials in Energy Conservation : An Analysis of Their Relevance, Size and Determinants

(2) Do existing estimates of the no-regret potential stand up to are-evaluation within this framework? As a result of this analysis the size of previous estimates for no-regret potentials may be modified - in terms ofenergy savings or in financial terms. On the basis of these findings, we will appro...
