Energy Efficiency Directive Revision Impact on the Romanian Energy Sector

The Energy Efficiency Directive (Directive 2012/27/EU), adopted in 2012, established a common framework of measures for the promotion of energy efficiency to help the European Union (EU) reach a 20% energy efficiency target by 2020.

In 2018, the EED was amended as part of the European Commission’s ‘Clean Energy for All Europeans’ package, updating some specific provisions and introducing several additional elements.

Above all, it established a new headline EU energy efficiency target for 2030 of at least 32.5% primary energy savings, with the possibility of an upward revision in 2023. To achieve this target, each Member State was required to achieve higher annual energy savings obligations (+0.8%).
