SPiCE³ - a look back on the project ... and the future.

30th June is the official last day of the SPiCE³ project. And what a ride the last 27 months have been!

This is the 8th newsletter that we have published and, coming at the end of the project, it gives us an opportunity to look back and summarise a little of what has been achieved.

It was back in April 2013 that the SPiCE³ project was set up by the European Chemical Industry Council (Cefic) together with its project partners to deliver added-value support to the European chemical sector in making companies aware of the importance of energy efficiency and in providing tools which help in the implementation of energy saving actions.

Energy Efficiency and an Energy Union for Europe

In July 2014, the Commission published a Communication on how energy efficiency can contribute to energy security and help achieve the 2020, and 2030 climate and energy targets, the latter of which includes cutting greenhouse gas emissions by 40%, boosting renewable energy up to 27%, increasing energy efficiency also up to 27%, all whilst reducing energy dependency and ensuring more affordable energy for business and consumers via a well-functioning internal market.

Decarbonisation of the UK Chemical Industry

A 'Decarbonisation and Energy Efficiency Roadmap' has recently been published by the UK Government. The aims are to improve understanding of the emissions-abatement potential of the sector, the relative costs of alternative abatement options and the related business environment including investment decisions, barriers and issues of competitiveness and establish a shared evidence base to inform future policy, and identify strategic conclusions and potential next steps to help deliver cost-effective decarbonisation in the medium to long term (over the period from 2020 to 2050).
