Implications of the Fit for 55 Package on Member States’ Energy Saving Obligations Changes to the update following the finalisation of the EPBD

May 2024


Energy savings obligation, monitoring and verification


How does the Fit for 55 package and the revision of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) ‘s legislation affect Member States’ implementation of their energy savings obligations under the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED)?

The second edition of this paper coincides with the publication of the recast EPBD ((EU)2024/1275) in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) in May 2024. As we approach the end of the current term of the European Parliament, the Energy Taxation Directive (ETD) remains in negotiation, however, we retain an assessment of the European Commission’s proposal in the paper. We also include assessments of other initiatives and ongoing legislative processes operating since the publication of the Commission’s proposal for the Fit for 55 package: the RePowerEU initiative has created new obligations for Member States, while Ecodesign, has continued to evolve with reviews of individual product regulations.
