A review of ESOS across the EU

The findings of this whose consultation ended in February 2021 will offer the basis for what needs to be streamlined, strengthened, added or changed in the EED in order:

(a) to address the remaining ambition gap to the 2030 EU energy efficiency targets and

(b) to deliver the increased EU greenhouse emissions reduction target of at least 55% by 2030.

Transport was found to be the sector with the highest energy consumption accounting for 34% of final energy consumption in 2018.

Energy intensity in industry has continued to improve by as much as 22% between 2005 and 2017.
