Concerns surface about effectiveness of new energy efficiency measures
The European Commission announced its proposals for a new Energy Efficiency Directive on Wednesday 22 June. The directive would support member states' efforts to encourage the use of energy efficiently. The proposals include: a legal obligation for energy saving schemes to be introduced in all member states; the public sector to lead by example; and energy saving schemes for large consumers. But the European Environmental Bureau (EEB) warned that the directive alone would not be sufficient to help the EU meet its target of 20% energy reduction by 2020 and said that stronger political action would be needed.
