The EEOS so far was supervised by the Department of Energy Policy Administration of the Ministry of Economics. Each obligated party draws an energy efficiency improvement action plan in order to reach the obligation target for each commitment period and submits to the responsible ministry. By 31 March each year, the obligated party shall submit to the responsible ministry amendments of the plan if necessary. The submissions can be done online. The responsible ministry has the right to involve experts independent of the obligated parties in the inspection/assessment of the energy savings report of the previous year.

“Poor households may benefit from some general energy policies. EEOS stipulates that electricity suppliers should reach a known energy saving by informing consumers about energy efficiency and promoting energy efficiency improvements. The ‘Live Warmer’ measure is an agreement signed by different stakeholders in the public and private sector to promote energy renewal in cooperation and provision of information to households.”

“Energy poverty reduction solutions are developed within NRP “Energy”, as well as within the international “STEP” project (within Horizon2020). The solutions developed under these projects will be included in the update of the Plan in 2023.”
