This snapshot presents an overview of the Energy Efficiency Obligation Schemes (EEOS) in Europe.
All these schemes are reported to the Article 7 of the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED), for the obligation period 2014-2020.
EEOS are schemes setting an obligation on energy companies (energy distributors or suppliers/retailers) to achieve energy savings targets. As shown in this snapshot, various ways can be used to specify this obligation, its scope, how the targets can be achieved by the obligated parties, how energy savings can be monitored, how verification and controls are made.
By the time of preparing this snapshot (end of 2019), 16 EEOS were in place in Europe.
