Implications of the Fit for 55 Package on Member States’ Energy Saving Obligations

Webinar report – How to set up and manage an energy efficiency fund?

Article 7 of the EED is one of the most important instruments for achieving the ambitious European energy efficiency targets. It allows the use of an Energy Efficiency Fund which can receive amounts from payments of obligated parties (or market participants) and the public budget to finance energy efficiency actions to generate required energy savings.

Energy Efficiency Obligation Scheme in the EED

Article 3 of EED requires that member states set an indicative national energy efficiency target. This target includes savings delivered by all national and EU-level actions, including new action under other provisions in the Energy Efficiency Directive.

Energy efficiency obligation schemes outside of the EU

EEOS exist in other countries of the world and their knowledge and experience is useful for the EU  Member States also.
