Since December 2001 new Long Term Agreements on Energy Efficiency (LTA2) have been defined with the 20 largest industrial sectors. Besides LTA2 there are still old LTAs in place with the 9 largest non-industrial sectors. New aspects covered within the new LTA2 include: - Participation of the environmental license-granting authority (competent authorities); - Attention for non-process measures; - Energy management systems. In order to oblige companies to only consider economically profitable measures, long-term agreements will only be defined with companies that have an internal rate of return of at least 15%, corresponding to a recovery period of 5 years or less for investments.
