Energy Efficiency Academy 3

By 2030, Greece’s National Energy and Climate Plan (NECP) defines energy efficiency targets and measures to be implemented across all sectors. Under EU regulation, Greece has set targets for annual energy savings for the 2017-2020 and 2021-2030 periods. In the building sector, the government is strengthening building codes and has launched a number of investment programmes that aim to improve, among others, the energy performance of public and private buildings. In the transport sector, Greece is supporting the uptake of electromobility and is investing in improving charging infrastructure. Measures for industry energy efficiency include energy audits and support for efficient equipment, mainly for heating.

The main question is how far is Greece for achieving these targets?

Key messages

  • The energy efficiency obligation scheme provided higher energy savings than expected between 2017 and 2020, but Greece fell short of achieving its overall energy saving target for this period.
  • Greece achieved its 2021 energy efficiency targets, but continued efforts are needed to reach 2030 targets.
