According to Article 24(9) of Directive 2012/27/EU on energy efficiency (EED), the Commission had to evaluate the implementation of Article 7 (on energy efficiency obligation schemes and alternative measures). Under Article 7 Member States are required to achieve end-use energy savings by end 2020. This study provides a quantitative assessment of how that obligation is being met and assesses whether the established framework allows the effective achievement of the required savings. The most commonly used policy measures are analysed in more detail and presented as cases studies in Appendix 4. This analysis fed into the evaluation and the impact assessment of the EED review.
