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.

An energy audit is an important step (the first one) for an organisation willing to improve its Energy Efficiency, and reduce its energy consumption.
