Energy Efficiency Obligation Scheme in Austria (terminated by the end 2020)

The EEOS in Austria started in January 2015, replacing voluntary agreements with energy suppliers set from 2009.
Obligated parties (OPs) had to report every year by February 14th the amount of end-use energy delivered to final customers of the previous year. The targets for the OPs were set annually as 0.6% of this reported final energy consumption. 40% of the target had to be achieved in the household sector (housing or transport).

All about the EEOS is available in the Austria_Factsheet 2019.

The Austrian law set the legislative framework for the EEOS to be in force until the end of 2020. The new Energy Efficiency Act 2023 has not renewed the EEOS, that is therefore no longer in force. Instead, the Energy Efficiency Act 2023 includes provisions to require energy suppliers to provide their customers with energy advice.
