On 5 April 2016 the JRC presented the interactive and collaborative online European Energy Efficiency Platform. This beta platform is conceived to fill the gap opened by scattered data and fragmented knowledge resulting from a rapidly growing energy efficiency market. It is expected to be both a one-stop shop for information retrieval and a meeting point for experts to exchange data and reduce redundant activities.
Assessment of the first National Energy Efficiency Action Plans under the Energy Efficiency Directive
The Energy Efficiency Directive was adopted in 2012, establishing indicative targets for 2020 and a set of binding measures in various sectors of the economy at national level. In compliance with the Directive’s provisions, Member States are required to present the progress and efforts made in the so-called National Energy Efficiency Action Plans (NEEAPs) every three years, starting from 2014. This report, which analyses the 2014 plans submitted by Member States, provides an overview of the national energy efficiency targets, outlines planned or implemented end-use and supply level measures and evaluates the energy savings resulting from the implementation of these measures.
