9 European Commission, Directorate-General for Energy and Transport n° RES & RUE – Recent May Directive on Energy end-use Efficiency and Energy Services Action Plan for Energy Efficiency 2006Proposal for Directive on low energy & emission road transport vehicles Trans- position date Adopted by EP & Council Proposed by Com. Directive proposals

10 European Commission, Directorate-General for Energy and Transport n° The Buildings Directive (2002/91/EC) 1. Common method to calculate the energy performance of buildings. Method to include all factors that impact on energy consumption and can be adapted to building types (homes, offices, schools, etc.) 2. Set minimum energy performance standards to new buildings and large existing buildings being refurbished. 3. Certification schemes for all buildings (new, sold, rented) 4. Display of certificates in public buildings 5. Inspection & assessment of boilers/heating and cooling installations The content

11 European Commission, Directorate-General for Energy and Transport n° The Eco-design Directive (2005/32/EC) The content The Directive aims to facilitate free movement of goods and to improve environmental performance of products throughout their life-cycle by integration of environmental aspects in product design Selection of products: Products with significant volume of sales, life-time impact & potential to change; Balance between ecological requirements, technical /economic feasibility; Health & safety + life-cycle costs will also be important

12 European Commission, Directorate-General for Energy and Transport n° The Eco-design Directive (2005/32/EC) Current activities Adopted by EP and Council on 7 July 2005 Technical & economical studies to provide background info on 13 products (+ 1 horizontal): Boilers, water heaters, computers, copiers/faxes/printers, televisions, battery chargers, office lighting, street lighting, air conditioning, electric motors, commercial fridges/freezers/ vending machines, domestic fridges & freezers, washing machines & dishwashers + study on standby equipment. Tender contract signed in late 2005 Studies recommend which improvement measures to be undertaken (voluntary agreements, directives etc)

13 European Commission, Directorate-General for Energy and Transport n° The Eco-design Directive (2005/32/EC) Next steps The Commission will develop a working plan with an indicative list of products by July 2007 Interested parties will further be consulted in the context of a Consultation Forum A Regulatory Committee to be consulted on the concrete eco-design requirement for each affected product The draft implementing measure to be checked by WTO and EP before final adoption by Commission

14 European Commission, Directorate-General for Energy and Transport n° The Energy Services Directive To promote cost-effective energy efficiency in EU Member States through obligations and the removal of institutional, financial and legal barriers. To promote the development of a sustainable market for energy efficiency and energy services. Article 1: Objective

15 European Commission, Directorate-General for Energy and Transport n° The Energy Efficiency Directive Covers all energy end-use suppliers (distributors and retailers of electricity, natural gas, LNG, LPG, district heating & cooling, heating oil, coal, lignite, peat, biomass, & transport fuels). Aviation fuels & maritime bunkers excluded. Small companies < 75 GWh/yr. excl from Art. 6 and 13. Covers all providers of energy efficiency improvement measures. Covers all energy end-use sectors: - domestic, agricultural, public and tertiary sectors - non-energy intensive industries and transport Emissions Trading sector excluded. Article 2: Scope

16 European Commission, Directorate-General for Energy and Transport n° The Energy Efficiency Directive Measured from until end of year 9 % target (1% cum annual savings). Indicative but carefully monitored & reported. Fixed amount of energy (TWh) calculated as 1% of 5-year average of unadjusted final cons. Credit for some early actions <1995 (1991). All measures must be verifiable and measurable or estimable. (Details Annexes I, II, III & IV.) Commission to revisit White Certificates Article 4: The target

17 European Commission, Directorate-General for Energy and Transport n° The Energy Efficiency Directive The Public Sector in Member States shall: publish energy efficiency guidelines as assessment criteria in tendering for public contracts; select two mandatory measures from list in Annex V, req. energy-efficient public procurement, energy audits & energy performance contracting. Article 5: Public Sector Obligations
