Description:The Danish Government undertook a discussion process regarding an action plan on energy savings. The objective of the proposed action plan was to strengthen energy savings efforts so as to maximise the environmental return on the investment. The action plan would specify energy savings targets for the various sectors up to the year 2005, and would outline the measures required to achieve them. These would include suggestions for new economic incentives to promote energy savings and the enhanced use of labelling schemes and standards. The intention was that energy savings efforts should be made more efficient by collating the state initiatives in framework programmes to be submitted for tender to external actors, creating competition for the implementation of the programmes and ensuring that the most suitable operators implement the project.
