Master the Energy Efficiency Directive without any headache

The EU Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) outlines a framework of measures in order for the EU to reach its 20% energy savings target by 2020 and pave the way for more energy efficiency improvements beyond that date. Now that the Directive has entered into force, Member States must transpose it into national law and implement the many requirements in the legislation before the 2020 deadline. You struggle at seeing clearly into it? The Coalition’s Guidebook for Strong Implementation is here to help.

The Coalition for Energy Savings has broken down the Directive into main themes and legal requirements, as well as developed a list of good practices for a strong, ambitious and complete implementation of the legislation. […] This guidebook is intended for […] national, regional and local implementers and stakeholders of the EED, including industry, manufacturers, utility companies and non-profit organisations.

Enjoy it! This is a very useful tool.

Instead of taking on the legislation article by article, the guidebook is broken down into ” main themes. The guidebook is structured as followed: Blue Part I: “Setting the targets” provides an overview of the EED and its objectives and targets; Orange Part II: “Reaching the targets” provides details about the main efficiency measures of the EED; Red Part III: “Getting on track” considers the overarching measures which bring all the pieces together and lead beyond 2020.
