On behalf of the Federal Government, the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi) issued a first national Energy Efficiency Action Plan (NEEAP) in November 2007 line with the 2006 EU Directive on energy services and energy end-use efficiency. The plan sums up the results of the national energy summits, the energy efficiency actions of the Integrated Energy and Climate Change Programme and underpins the aims of the Coalition Agreement by reviewing the present energy efficiency policy and proposing and/or amending additional 32 energy efficiency measures covering all sectors. The second National Energy Efficiency Action Plan was released in 2011. The action plan's report confirms that Germany will meet the indicative energy savings target laid down in the EU Directive on energy end-use efficiency and energy services. Germany's target under the Directive is to achieve energy savings totalling 9% by 2016 (measured against average annual energy consumption for the period 2001-2005). The third NEEAP was released in 2014.
