Study evaluating progress in the implementation of Article 7 of the Energy Efficiency Directive
Report for DG Energy
This report provides the final results from a study that has assessed the progress of the implementation of Article 7 (and the related Annex V) of the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) by European Union (EU) Member States. The study provides a quantified assessment of expected energy savings from national policy measures notified by Member States under Article 7, and the expected contribution of these measures towards the EU’s 2020 energy efficiency target. A number of areas of improvement were identified and specific options were developed for possible legal revisions and/or amendments of Article 7 and Annex V of the EED. The study was carried out by a consortium of CE Delft, Ricardo and REKK, with Ricardo as project leader and CE Delft as project director.
