Energy efficiency act (EEffG)

The aim of the Federal Energy Efficiency Act is to improve energy efficiency. The goal is to improve energy efficiency by 20% between 2015 and 2020. In addition, the security of supply should be improved, positive impulses for the economy should be provided and 6,400 new jobs in the “energy efficiency“ sector created as a result of the higher gross domestic product. The reason for this law is the implementation of the Energy Efficiency Directive 2012/27/EU and the achievement of the three targets set by the legislation of the Union, the so-called „20-20-20 targets“:

  • 20 % less greenhouse gas emissions than in 1990
  • 20 % share of renewable energies
  • 20 % more energy efficiency

These laws have consequences not only for energy suppliers, but also for companies: they’re obliged to establish concrete measures to reduce their electricity consumption – whether through a regular on-site energy counseling or the introduction of an energy management system in accordance with ISO 50001.

More energy efficiency means higher competitiveness. The possiblities to save energy are almost unlimited. That way everyone can contribute a part to reduce our ecological footprints.
