Workshop on Article 7 of the EED

5 February 2015, Brussels, Belgium
Venue: European Commission, Centre Albert Borschette,  room AB-4A, rue Froissart 36, 1040 Brussels

The ENSPOL Workshop on Article 7 of the EED: Energy Efficiency Obligation Schemes (EEOs) and alternative measures was held on the 5th of February 2015 in Brussels, Belgium.
The objective of this workshop was to bring together policy makers and stakeholders from EU Member States (MS) to discuss the implementation of Energy Efficiency Obligation schemes (EEOs) and Alternative Measures delivering Article 7 of the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED).
The following issues were addressed:

  • What considerations lead to the choice of a certain implementation option in different Member States? What are the key methodological and policy design features adopted to comply with Article 7 of the Energy Efficiency Directive?
  • What are the advantages and disadvantages to both - EEOs and alternative measures? What are the next steps to successfully implement Article 7 of the Energy Efficiency Directive?

The results of this workshop will contribute to a better understanding of what works and what does not work in relation to the implementation of the EEOs and alternative measures under Article 7, and how to overcome the barriers associated to both approaches in order to reach the required energy savings targets by 2020.
