The European Environmental Bureau (EEB) has examined gas and electricity saving measures adopted by EU states. Analysis findings show that measures lby EU states to reduce energy consumption vary widely and remain insufficient to put the EU on track to reach its own energy-saving targets.
The report indicates that governments could do much more to reduce energy consumption. Sufficiency is fundamental not only to achieving climate neutrality, but also to ensuring energy security, and yet we see little action.
EEB proposes in this paper five additional measures to facilitate gas and electricity consumption reduction in tandem with the current mosaic of EU states’ initiatives.
