The Concerted Action for the Energy Efficiency Directive (CA EED) was launched in spring 2013 in order to support the effective implementation of the Directive. The CA EED is financed under the Intelligent Energy Europe Programme of the European Commission and builds upon the work of the Concerted Action ESD (CA ESD II) which supported the implementation of the Energy Services Directive (2006/32/EC). The CA EED benefits from a strong European network and a wealth of information gathered and lessons learned.

The objectives of the CA EED are to:

  • Enhance and structure the sharing of information and experiences from national implementation whilst promoting good practice concepts in activities to improve and strengthen Member State implementation of the EED.
  • Create favourable conditions for an accelerated degree of convergence of national procedures in EED related matters.
  • Complement the work of the Committee on the Energy Efficiency Directive

The work of the CA EED is structured around eight Themes covering the key requirements of the EED:

  1. National Energy Efficiency Action Plansand annual reports and measuring progress in energy efficiency
  2. Public Sector- public buildings and public purchasing
  3. Metering and billing, demand response and grid issues
  4. Funds and Financingfor energy efficiency
  5. Energy servicesand ESCOs, energy auditing, solving administrative barriers
  6. Consumer informationprogrammes, training and certification of professionals
  7. Efficiency in Energy Supply, high efficiencyCHP and heating/cooling
  8. Energy efficiencyobligation schemes, monitoringimpacts of eligible measures

The work carried out within the CA EED is organised around a series of two-day Plenary Meetings spread over the duration of the action. Each Plenary Meeting involves a number of parallel sessions focusing on specific subtopics within the 8 Themes.

For each subtopic, a Working Group composed of 2 to 3 participants from different Member States, is established and is responsible for collecting information, preparing discussions on the topic and summarising key findings after the Plenary Meeting. Following the meeting a number of outputs are made available including reports, presentations and good practice factsheets.

There are two sister Concerted Actions which support the transposition and implementation of the Renewables Directive and Energy Performance of Building Directive .
