Enhancing the Implementation and Monitoring and Verification practices of Energy Saving Policies under Article 7 of the EED

Project description

Helping 14 EU countries implement EED's Article 7

Article 7 of the EU’s Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) obliges participating EU member states to reach specific energy savings by the end of 2020. This task has proven to be overwhelming for public authorities, who tend to operate with limited time and resources. ENSMOV is a project initiated by the Institute for European Energy and Climate Policy to help 14 EU states with the implementation of Article 7 by providing workshops on requirements in 10 key areas, technical support, and a way of sharing experiences – especially through the (web platform) – which is particularly important on a local level. The ENSMOV project will involve 150 participants, including at least 45 state officials.


ENSMOV will support public authorities and key stakeholders in 14 Member States represented by its consortium (NL, BE, IT, FR, GR, AT, DE, PL, RO, UK, HR, BG, HU, LT) in implementing the Article 7 EED requirements. More specifically it will assist them to monitor, improve and complement the design and implementation of their energy efficiency policies by developing resources on practical issues they face. As the implementation of the Article 7 EED has shown, public authorities have limited time and resources to share experiences at the EU level and, as previous projects (EC IEE ENSPOL, EC H2020 MULTEE, PUBLENEF, EPATEE) demonstrated, the opportunity to share experiences is very welcome by public authorities. To find implementation challenges and solutions for energy efficiency obligations (EEOs) and alternative measures and monitoring and verification (MRV) schemes, ENSMOV has designed an experience sharing programme with a structured set of national, regional and EU workshops to address Article 7 EED requirements. These exchanges are underpinned by technical support to ensure that experience sharing results in positive impacts and actual improvements of policy implementation and monitoring. An important tool for active engagement of public authorities will be the Knowledge Transfer Platform, designed to enable discussion on Article 7 EED implementation issues (updated ENSPOL platform This programme will cover up to 10 crucial MRV and policy implementation topics and is expected to result in improved capacity of 150 unique participants (at least 45 public officers), at least 30 policies influenced through the action, 14 MS with improved implementation of Article 7 and improved and consistent MRV systems. These will all lead to a smoother transition in the new Article 7 EED era.
