Sufficiency assumptions workshop presentation and assumptions table

The presentation from the assumptions workshop on 21 May 2021 entails key presentations from sufficiency experts from partner organisations on sufficiency assumptions building. It also contains partners’ proposals for potential targets and justifications on key sufficiency indicators such as square meters per inhabitant or average households size for the buildings sector, or traveled distance (passenger.km/capita) by different modes of transport or number of people per vehicle for the mobility sector.

The assumptions table gathers comprehensive information for building assumptions and sufficiency targets adapted to the Lithuanian and Hungarian context. Partners selected and prioritised up to 30 key sufficiency indicators from square meters per inhabitant or average households size for the buildings sector to traveled distance (passenger.km) by different modes of transport or number of people per vehicle for the mobility sector. Implementing partners gathered historical data for each indicator, and justified it with regards to the national socio-economic and cultural context. Sufficiency experts from négaWatt and independent expert Lukas Godé inserted theoretical sufficiency potentials for 2050 from literature, as well as 2050 potentials adapted to the French or German context in key sufficiency based scenarios such as the négaWatt scenario for France or Green Supreme from Rescue for Germany. On the basis of this research and the detailed exchanges in the assumptions workshop, partners from LEI and REKK could detail 2050 sufficiency targets for each indicator, and justify it in a “background column”.

National analytical brief for Hungary

This analytical brief for Hungary is the starting point for the CACTUS project. It explores the energy sufficiency gap and potential for the buildings and transport sectors in light of the local energy and climate context. In the reports, experts from CACTUS national implementing partners REKK analyse the national legislative frameworks, socio-cultural barriers and enablers, as well as key indicators describing the energy demand, their evolution to date in comparison with EU trends. The briefs make first recommendations with a view to reaching more ambitious climate mitigation levels through sufficiency, and for the next steps of the project.
