The Energy Efficiency Directive, approved in 2012, was the legislative result of the EEP that was published in March 2011. The new directive repeals the Cogeneration Directive (2004/8/EC) and the Energy End-Use Efficiency and Energy Services Directive (2006/32/EC. The EED is ambitious. It is meant to fill the gap between existing framework Directives and national/international measures on energy efficiency and the 2020 EU target for energy savings. It covers all sectors except transport, and includes, for the first time in an “energy efficiency” directive, measures for supply side efficiency.
This guide provides a simple summary of the Directive’s contents. The guide is complemented by a new FAQ section on the Directive on eceee’s web site.
