The National Energy Efficiency Action Plan (NEEAP) - 4th version 2017-2020
The NEAAP confirms Ireland's commitment to a 20% energy savings target in 2020 and to achieving a 33% reduction in public sector energy use. These constitute the central pillars of Ireland's national energy efficiency policy.
The 2014 NEAAP acknowledges that the substantial savings in the last three years. The key message from these figures is that Ireland has achieved 12,337GWh (primary energy equivalent) by end-2012, which represents 39% of the national target. Progress is also steady with respect to the 33% target set for the public sector. Nevertheless, the mix of energy policy measures across the various sectors of the economy will be kept under constant review and adapted as necessary to ensure they are contributing the energy savings required to meet the 2020 objectives.
