Energy efficiency for EU consumers

In Luxembourg, the ministers of the member states in charge of energy meet Monday. They adopted a regulation on energy efficiency labels, which allows consumers to choose less expensive devices.

On 26 June 2017 at the Energy Council in Luxembourg, EU energy ministers reached agreement on the general approach concerning proposals for revised directives on energy efficiency and energy performance of buildings.

The Council agreed a 30% EU energy efficiency target. The negotiations were long and many compromise proposals were needed before the necessary majority was obtained.
