The second Concerted Action for the Energy Efficiency Directive (CA EED) aims to support the effective implementation of the Directive. It was launched in spring 2017 and is financed under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. It builds upon the work of the first Concerted Action (CA EED), launched in 2013 and the Concerted Action ESD (CA ESD II). 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 MS implementation of the EED.
  • To encourage dialogue between MS on common approaches for the effective implementation of particular parts of the EED.
  • To complement the work of the EED Committee assisting the European Commission.

The work of the CA EED is structured around fourteen Expert Areas covering the key requirements of the EED:

  1. Energy efficiency schemes and measures: planning, monitoring and verification and savings calculations
  2. Public buildings
  3. Public purchasing
  4. Long term building renovation strategy
  5. Metering and billing and billing information
  6. Demand side resources
  7. Grid efficiency and transformation efficiency
  8. Energy services and ESCOs
  9. Energy audits and management systems
  10. Certification of energy services, training and certification of energy auditors and energy managers
  11. Efficiency in Energy Supply, high efficiency CHP and heating/cooling
  12. Energy efficiency obligation schemes and alternative measures
  13. Finance (cross-cutting area)
  14. Information and training (cross-cutting area)

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 one of the expert areas, or on a topic which spans different expert areas.

For each topic, a Working Group composed of up 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 proceedings, 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 .
