Description:The objective of this consultation is two-fold: it aims to assess whether Europe is on track to meet its 2020 target, and if not what policy measures could remedy this shortfall. It also looks to devising an "economically optimal" level of ambition for 2030 and asks for comments on the best approach to achieve it.
Implication(s):Up to 2020, the consultations asks what should be done to address the shortfall and proposes three potential options including new legislation, national targets or strengthened implementation. Each option would have different impacts, but it is likely that at a minimum it will result in increased concentration on infringements, product design and a more wide-spread use of product standardisation.
Current Position:Our Energy Efficiency Working Group will lead on the submission. The closing date for submissions is 28 April.
