The National Energy Efficiency Action Plan 2017-2020, submitted to Brussels in April 2017, meets the requirement of Article 24.2 of Directive 2012/27/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25 October 2012, on energy efficiency, which requires all Member States of the European Union to submit these plans, the first by 30 April 2014 and then every three years.
This Plan, which follows the National Energy Efficiency Action Plan 2014-2020, is configured as a central tool of energy policy, the implementation of which is achieving the energy efficiency and savings targets resulting from Directive 2012/27/EU.
The following points are all adressed by the NEEAP:
- horizontal measures for Energy Efficiency across the economy
- Energy efficiencyt in buildings
