Legal References:End-use efficiency and Energy Services Directive 2006/32/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 5 April 2006. A third NEEAP was submitted in 2015, in which the figures from the previous NEEAP were confirmed.

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. Sweden elaborated its NEEAP in 2008, describing the energy efficiency improvement measures aimed at achieving the savings targets set out in Article 4(1) of the Directive. The Plan also describes how Sweden will comply with the provisions on the exemplary role of the public sector and the provision of information and advice to final consumers. The Plan is available, in Swedish, at: In June 2011 a 2nd NEEAP was submitted to the EU Commission. This plan shows that Sweden will reach the indictaive target of 9 % energy savings by 2016 with good margin. However, because the calculation methods used in Sweden significantly differ from those recommended by the EU Commission, these figures are used only in communication with the Commission. Swedish domestic calculation methods indicate a more modest result.
