On 4 October 2017, in the context of the October infringements package, the European Commission announced that they are sending a letter of formal notice requesting Spain to ensure the correct implementation of the EU legislation on energy efficiency (Energy Efficiency Directive, Directive 2012/27/EU).


The Directive requires Member States to install individual meters or heat cost allocators to measure energy consumption and allocate the costs in multi-apartment and multi-purpose buildings where heating, cooling and/or hot water is supplied from a central/collective installation.


Spain now has two months to reply.
