The European Union’s so-called ‘Winter Package’ sets out an ambitious trajectory for energy efficiency for the period after 2020. Reaching the energy efficiency targets requires not only new policies but also a rigorous monitoring and verification regime at the national level. Otherwise there is a risk that many of the claimed energy savings exist only on paper.

Two countries with sophisticated monitoring and verification policies in place (Austria and Ireland) share their experiences of how to set up effective systems to ensure that energy efficiency improvements are being delivered effectively.
