Ireland published it's second NEEAP in February 2013. The second Action Plan, provides a progress report on delivery of the national energy savings targets implemented under current EU requirements as well as energy efficiency policy priorities between now and 2020.  The Action Plan reaffirms Ireland’s commitment to a 20% energy savings target in 2020. The actions outlined in the new Action Plan are projected to realise 34,060GWh of energy savings in 2020, which is equivalent to a 21.1% saving on the baseline period; i.e. an overachievement of 1.1%. The Plan follows a similar approach to its predecessor, identifying realisable but ambitious actions across six areas: Public Sector, Residential, Business, Transport, Energy Supply, and Cross-Sectoral. It contains 97 actions (the first NEEAP contained 90 actions which have been reviewed, updated and deleted as appropriate).
