Energy Efficiency Directive
The 2012/27/EU Directive adopted in December 2012 is the latest major piece of EU legislation promoting energy efficiency throughout major economic sectors in the EU.
It creates a common framework of energy efficient measures aimed at helping Europe reach the 20% energy consumption reduction target the EU has fixed itself for 2020.
In particular, the Directive calls for:
- public procurement of highly energy efficient appliances;
- the development of demand response, opening the participation in the energy markets to consumersin a non-discriminatory fashion.
As a member of the Coalition for Energy Savings, CECED has contributed to the Coalition’s guidebook for strong implementation.
