Europe, Webinars | May 6, 2017

Article 7 is a key provision of the European Energy Efficiency Directive which established a set of binding measures to help the EU reach its 20% energy efficiency target by 2020. Each member state has to calculate its own savings target, and demonstrate how it will deliver the target between 2014 and 2020.

This webinar introduces the main features of Article 7, shows how member states have implemented it, and discusses the challenge of evaluating its impact given the heterogeneity of policy responses.

The webinar will conclude with a number of options how a revised Article 7 can be simplified and streamlined, how transparency of implementation can be improved and how member states could be supported to deliver energy efficiency more effectively.
