In 2018, the European Union set itself the target to achieve a 32.5% energy efficiency improvement by 2030. Member States have to set indicative contributions and notify policies and measures to reach the mandatory 0.8% annual energy savings in their National Energy and Climate Plans.   This document presents a first assessment of national contributions and annual energy savings notifications.
