The key objective of EEPLIANT2 is to help deliver the intended economic and environment benefits of the EU Energy Labelling and Ecodesign Directives by increasing the rates of compliance with the energy efficiency requirements. Seventeen Market Surveillance Authorities (MSAs) and a national agency from fifteen Member States work jointly to coordinate their monitoring, verification, and enforcement actions. In this regard, the project is expected to have a transnational impact across the EU Single Market.

European Union’s energy targets for 2030 include the transformation of the building stock to Nearly Zero Energy Buildings - nZEBs. NZEBs are characterized by reduced net-energy demand, where most of their energy needs are met by renewable energy sources, especially Photovoltaics. Consequently, in the following years, a considerable amount of intermittent solar generators will be connected in the electrical grid posing new challenges concerning the secure and reliable grid operation.
