The Energy Efficiency Directive is the cornerstone of EU efficiency policy and it is currently being reviewed. WWF believes this is a unique opportunity to increase its ambition by:
- Setting a binding 40% energy savings target by 2030: higher energy efficiency means higher benefits for society and individuals. For example, with a 30% energy saving target, instead of a 40% the EU will loose jobs, loose money and pollute more.
- Reinforce the provisions on Energy Savings Obligation Schemes (Art.7) by removing the current loopholes and exemptions that dilute the effectiveness of this article.
