Existing and planned Energy Efficiency Obligation schemes (EEOs) in the European Union - Part I Evaluation of existing schemes

Share this Post:

This document describes and analyses the existing energy efficiency obligation schemes (EEOs) in Flanders (Belgium), France, United Kingdom, Denmark, Poland and Italy expected to deliver a certain amount of end-use energy savings over the 2014-2020 obligation period as prescribed in the Energy Efficiency Directive EED. It is shown that overall, the majority of end-use energy savings have come from relatively low cost energy measures in the buildings sector. It is also concluded that, member states opting for EEOs can further improve the design of their new EEO scheme in order to be more effective in reaching the energy efficiency objectives.
