Abstract: The present study has been conducted by the Joint Research Centre on behalf of DG ENER with the purpose to understand the status of programmes promoting energy audits and energy management systems in the Member States of the European Union. The objectives of this report are to assess the extent to which the requirements of Article 8 of the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) are already met and to understand the level of additional effort needed by the Member States to meet their obligations under the named article. Another objective of this report is to identify eventual barriers and make recommendations on how the goals of Article 8 can be fulfilled. This report was put together by sending a survey to different contact points in the Member States, such as members of energy agencies, governmental bodies responsible for the implementation and regulation of energy policy, energy efficiency experts, and members of the academia. There were also performed interviews with national experts and representatives of standardization bodies that gave their input in the matters of the implementation of Article 8 throughout the European Union. It was possible to gather contributions from contact points from the great majority of the Member States except from the cases of Belgium, Ireland and Luxembourg. For the cases of Belgium and Ireland, since these countries have been carrying, for many years now, consolidated programmes on the subject of energy efficiency and energy audits it was still possible to gather sufficient information to perform an evaluation on the status of their general policies. Also, during the workshop organized by the JRC on behalf of DG ENER on the implementation of Article 8 in the month of March of 2014, it was possible to contact with representatives from Member States, from the industry sector and from certification bodies that shared their view on the implementation of this article within their areas of action and expertise.
