Can Europe Deliver on Energy Efficiency? Investigating the Effectiveness of Article 7 of the Energy Efficiency Directive
Article 7 is a key provision of the European Energy Efficiency Directive which established a set of binding measures to help the EU reach its 20 percent energy efficiency target by 2020. Each member state has to calculate its own savings target and demonstrate how it will deliver the target between 2014 and 2020.
RAP’s Jan Rosenow joins Leonardo Energy for a webinar that introduces the main features of Article 7, shows how member states have implemented it, and discusses the challenge of evaluating its impact, given the heterogeneity of policy responses.
The webinar will conclude with a number of options to simplify and streamline Article 7, improve implementation transparency, and support member states to deliver energy efficiency more effectively.
