Existing and planned Energy Efficiency Obligation schemes (EEOs) in the European Union - Part II Description of planned schemes

Share this Post:

This document describes and analyses planned energy efficiency obligation schemes (EEOs) in Austria, Bulgaria, Estonia, Hungary, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Ireland, Spain and Slovenia as prescribed in the Energy Efficiency Directive EED. The report shows that the main driver of the new EEOs is improving energy efficiency and that the main obligated parties are energy suppliers, followed by energy distributors who will realise efficiency improvements in different end-use sectors. Most Member States (MS) allow obligated parties to generate savings in all end-use sectors, but the residential sector is often preferred.
