Energy Efficiency Directive recast

As part of the Fit for 55 Package, the European Commission published a proposal for Energy Efficiency Directive recast on 14 July 2021. The proposal introduces higher energy efficiency targets, enhances the current energy efficiency measures and proposes new measures, obligations and objectives.

On 18 May 2022, the Commission published the REPowerEU plan which is a plan to rapidly reduce dependence on Russian fossil fuels and speed up the green transition. As part of the REPowerEU plan, the Commission proposes even higher targets for energy efficiency than the proposal of Energy Efficiency Directive recast.
