Portugal’s second NEEAP (National Energy Efficiency Action Plan) for 2013-2016 provides a progress report on the energy savings targets implemented under current EU requirements as well as energy efficiency policy priorities. It reflects the new National Energy Strategy, aiming to fulfil Portugal 2020 targets.

The estimate of savings induced by PNAEE 2016 is 1501 ktoe, corresponding to a reduction of energy consumption of approximately 8.2% relative to the average consumption in the period between 2001 and 2005, which approximates the indicative target set by the European Union of 9% energy savings by 2016. The establishment of the time horizon of 2020 for the purpose of monitoring and controlling the estimated impact on the primary energy consumption allows to foresee in advance the fulfilment of the new targets set by the EU, the 20% reduction of primary energy consumption by 2020, as well as the goal assumed by the Government to reduce the primary energy consumption by 25% in 2020 and achieve energy savings equivalent to 30% of the energy consumption in public buildings by 2020. It covers six areas: Transport, Residential and Services, Industry, State, Agriculture and Behaviours.
