Abstract: The review of the second National Energy Efficiency Action Plans (NEEAPs) of EU Member States has shown that many of them are facing a critical challenge in terms of changing the scale of energy efficiency improvement efforts. Their objectives for 2016 or 2020 reflect a very significant increase in the deliv¬ery of actions and/or energy savings (often 5 to 10-fold in the annual rate of actions for the residential sector). This paper first analyses the key barriers to address for achiev¬ing these changes of scale. Then it highlights a selection of mea¬sures that represent examples useful for policy-makers in terms of strategies for scaling up the energy efficiency programmes. These selected measures deal with such key energy efficiency policy components or objectives as funding mechanisms, train¬ing of skilled staff, and mobilization of relevant actors. They intend to support an increase in the number and/or in the qual¬ity of actions implemented. The types of measures covered in¬clude schemes to stimulate the offer of energy savings actions or packages, to involve construction or renovation companies, to encourage comprehensive renovations at the district level, performance-based financial incentives, financial guarantees, knowledge sharing and training. The paper brings a useful insight, especially for Member States preparing detailed roadmaps to structure their energy efficiency strategies for buildings, as required by the new En¬ergy Efficiency Directive (2012/27/EU).
