On 22 June 2011, the European Commission presented the legislative proposal for a Directive on energy efficiency which transforms into binding measures many of the key actions proposed in the Energy Efficiency Plan. The aim is to step up Member States efforts to use energy more efficiently at all stages of the energy chain, from the transformation of energy and its distribution to its final consumption. The Directive also foresees that the Commission will make, in 2014, an assessment of the progress made towards the EU's 20% energy efficiency objective for 2020 and, if necessary, bring forward a further legislative proposal to set mandatory national energy efficiency targets.
