Description:According to Article 14(2) of the European End-use efficiency and Energy Services Directive, Member States are to submit their first National Energy Efficiency Action Plan (NEEAP) to the Commission by June 30, 2007. In their NEEAPs, Member States must show how they intend to reach the 9% indicative energy savings target by 2016. Greece has provided its NEEAP, describing the energy efficiency improvement measures aimed at achieving the savings targets set out in Article 4(1) of the Directive.
