Description:The goal of Slovenia's Energy Efficiency Action Plan is to achieve 9% energy savings by 2016. The obligation for distributers from the new EU Energy Efficiency Directive has already been implemented in Slovenia: in compliance with the EU directive and the national action plan all energy suppliers must achieve 1% annual energy savings. In 2010, the contribution for improving the efficiency of electricity consumption and the fuel-price supplement started to be charged with the use of fossil energy. These funds are used for programs designed to achieve energy savings. With the new charge, available funds for energy efficiency programs have greatly increased and come close to providing the total amount needed to realise government objectives in this area. Obligations for energy savings only apply to big distributors, while for others, energy programs are implemented by the Ecological Fund (Eko sklad), which is focused on energy efficiency measures in households.
