This report provides the final results from a study that has assessed the implementation of Article 7 (and the related Annex V) of the Energy Efficiency Directive by Member States. Member States had to submit their national notifications setting out how they intend to transpose Article 7 of the Directive by 5th December 2013. Member States submitted further information in April 2014 as part of their National Energy Efficiency Action Plans (NEEAPs)and in updated Article 7 notifications. The project team reviewed the notifications and NEEAPs using a robust framework consistent with the Directive and checked how Member States have responded to the requirements in Article 7. This included an analysis of the policy measures proposed and their suitability, the calculation of the energy savings targets and an in-depth assessment of the monitoring, measurement and verification approaches. The report provides an overview of the proposed policy measures and their contribution to energy savings by 2020. It also identifies key issues around the methodologies used to calculate the energy saving targets, the proposed policy instruments, and the monitoring, reporting, verification and compliance regime.
