The  SAVE Programme

The SAVE Programme is the principal focus of the Community's non-technological action on energy efficiency. 

The SAVE Programme is the principal focus of the Community's non-technological action on energy efficiency. 

It is the only Union-wide programme dedicated exclusively to promoting energy efficiency and encouraging energy-saving behaviour in industry, commerce and the domestic sector as well as in transport through policy measures, information, studies and pilot actions and the creation of local and regional energy management agencies. 

The first SAVE programme was adopted by the Council in October 1991 and lasted until 1995. Its successor programme SAVE II was adopted by the Council in December 1996 (96/737/EC) for a period of five years (1996-2000). In February 2000 (647/2000/EC) SAVE was integrated into the Energy Framework Programme which outlines the Community's strategy for the five years period 1998-2002 (99/21/EC, Euratom)

On 9 April 2002 the Commission adopted a proposal for a successor programme to SAVE ("Intelligent Energy for Europe", 2003-2006), which is currently under discussion in the Council and in the European Parliament.
