Description

The EU has developed an increasingly ambitious energy efficiency policy. In particular with the publication of an EU Energy Efficiency Action Plan in April 2000, the issue of efficiency has become a central concern of policy makers. The passage of the Energy Efficiency Directive underlines this trend: this is a piece of legislation which has the potential to profoundly influence the activity and behaviour of energy suppliers, consumers, energy service companies and others involved in the energy sector. This volume covers all areas of EU energy efficiency policy, from the objectives and strategic direction of policy at EU level, to the implications of EU policy for Member States and their energy efficiency action plans. Chapters are also devoted to exploring the implications of individual directives and regulations such as the Energy Efficiency Directive; the recast Energy Performance of Buildings Directive; the Eco Design Directive; and regulations pertaining to energy labelling of appliances.
