The conference has given an update on implementation of this Directive. It presented the main results achieved by the EEW project so far, including screenings of National Energy Efficiency Action Plans and a comprehensive stakeholder survey on the progress of energy efficiency policies in the EU Member States in the last years. Besides expert presentations, an interactive voting session was held.

The IEE-project Energy-Efficiency-Watch 2 (EEW2):

Besides screening second NEEAPs of the EU Member states, up to 20 events are planned in the project with the purpose to exchange good practices, raise awareness and encourage discussion among stakeholders, networks, industry, policy-makers and experts. The expected outcome are European and national energy efficiency policies of better quality and an experience exchange with the aim of filling implementation gaps.
