National action plans and annual progress reports

National energy efficiency action plans (NEEAPs) set out estimated energy consumption, planned energy efficiency measures, long-term renovation strategies, and the improvements that individual EU countries expect to achieve to reach the EU 2020 target of 20%.

Under the Energy Efficiency Directive (2012/27EU), EU countries must draw up these plans every three years and they must report the progress achieved towards their national energy efficiency targets on an annual basis.

The Commission provided a guidance document (SWD (2013) 180) establishing a template for the national energy efficiency action plans. The table below lists EU countries’ current energy efficiency action plans and the most recent annual reports.

National plans for the EU 2030 target

For the period from 2021-2030, each EU country is required to draw up a 10-year integrated national energy & climate plan (NECP) outlining how it intends to meet the different targets for 2030, including energy efficiency.

Previous energy efficiency action plans

In the energy efficiency action plans which EU countries were required to prepare under the Energy Services Directive (2006/32/EC), they described how they planned to achieve a 9% energy efficiency improvement by 2016. The directive was repealed by the Energy Efficiency Directive (2012/27/EU).
