Brussels: proposal for a new Directive fostering energy efficiency
latest estimations suggest that the EU will only achieve half of
the Europe 2020 targets in 2020. The European Council and the
European Parliament have therefore urged the Commission to adopt a
new ambitious strategy on energy efficiency for determined action
to tap the considerable potential.
Directive transforms certain aspects of the EEP (put forward on
March 8, 2011) into binding measures to make a significant
contribution to meeting the EU's 2020 energy efficiency target, and
it looks beyond, seeking to set a common framework to promote
energy efficiency in the Union beyond 2020.
