A joint initiative of the EU Member States and the European Commission, the Concerted Action for the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (CA EPBD) was launched in 2005. It involves those representatives of national ministries or their affiliated institutions charged with preparing the technical, legal and administrative framework for the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive in each country. The key aim is to enhance the sharing of information and experiences from national adoption and implementation of this important European legislation.
For information:


The Concerted Action on the Renewable Energy Sources Directive (CA-RES) started in July 2010 and spans over a period of three years. The CA-RES supports the transposition and implementation of the Directive 2009/28/EC and the achievement of the national targets. The CA-RES is organized as a structured and strictly confidential dialogue between national authorities responsible for the implementation of the Directive 2009/28/EC or their nominated representatives. In the CA-RES, Member States exchange experiences and best practices and develop common approaches.

Energy Efficiency Watch
In January 2006, several Members of the European Parliament as well as of several EU Member States published their Call for an "Energy Efficiency Watch". The aim of this call is to promote energy efficiency and good policy in the field of energy efficiency within Europe. Based on this call, an "Energy-Efficiency-Watch-Initiative" (EEWI) started its work over the year 2006. This website is the online platform of the EEWI and the associated "Energy-Efficiency-Watch-Project" (EEW).

Energy Demand Management Committee
The Energy Demand management Committee (EDM committee) is set up through Article 14 of the Directive 2003/91/EC on the energy performance of buildings. This committee has the mandate to assist the Commission by adopting draft implementing measures as defined by the Directive and to support the Commission in the review and evaluation of the Directive. This Committee also serves as a forum to exchange information and good practice. The access to the EDM Committee is only granted to nominated national representatives.


EU LTA Uptake
The EU supported LTA Uptake project started in October 2007. Its goals are 1) to develop a toolkit to facilitate sector associations and governments in setting up Long Term Voluntary Agreements (LTAs) on energy efficiency, and 2) to gain mutual benefits: energy costs saving, less environmental legislation, less administrative burden for the sector, improved environmental sector image and achieving national environmental targets

European Commission: energy
Europe's citizens and companies need a secure supply of energy at affordable prices in order maintaining our standards of living. At the same time, the negative effects of energy use, particularly fossil fuels, on the environment must be reduced. That is why EU policy focuses on creating a competitive internal energy market offering quality service at low prices, on developing renewable energy sources, on reducing dependence on imported fuels, and on doing more with a lower consumption of energy.
