The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

The report is based on the screening of the National Energy Efficiency Action Plans (NEEAPs) as well as an expert survey, on the implementation of those policies since the first NEEAPs were published in 2007. The report provides a unique overview of policy packages and the current implementation status of energy efficiency policies in Finland.
