Webinar Series: Strong Implementation of the EU’s Energy Efficiency Directive
The EU Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) is an opportunity for Member States to reap the full economic and environmental benefits of energy savings and to pave the way for a more competitive and sustainable Europe.
To urge Member States to aim high, the Coalition for Energy Savings developed a Guidebook for Strong Implementation that breaks down the EU Energy Efficiency Directive into main themes, deadlines, legal checks and good practices, and outlines the top recommendations for complete and ambitious implementation.
Join the Coalition for a three-part webinar series that will teach participants how to navigate the Directive, what ambitious implementation has to offer, and how to get Member States on board.
