National Action Plans for Energy Efficiency

The Ministerial Council adopted on 18 Dec 2009 Decision D/2009/05/MC-EnC on the implementation of certain Directives on Energy Efficiency, that includes Directive 2006/32/EC on energy end-use efficiency and energy services (ESD). 


NEEAPs are intended to set energy savings targets and propose concrete measures and actions at the level of each Contracting Party that would contribute to meeting the targets. For the purpose of the first NEEAP, each Contracting Party should set an overall national indicative savings target of 9% or higher, to be achieved and measured in 2018, and an intermediate national indicative savings target to be achieved in 2012.

The priority actions of the Action Plans are:

  • Transport: fuel efficient cars; better use of public transport; introduction of biofuels
  • Appliances: tougher standards and better labelling
  • Buildings: improving the energy performance of the EU’s building stock
  • Improving the efficiency of heat and electricity generation, transmission and distribution
  • Facilitating investments and financial incentives for energy efficiency in cooperation with financial institutions, including Member States
  • Structural Funds and the EIB/EBRD to support energy efficiency
  • International dimension: propose a new international agreement on energy efficiency (improved, internationally agreed minimum energy efficiency standards for a wide range of products and equipment) with at least IEA countries, Russia, China and India

NEEAPS were submitted by the following countries.
