Energy efficiency agreements have been created to promote energy efficiency and the use of renewable forms of energy. The energy efficiency agreement system is aimed at fulfilling some of our international commitments to fight the climate change in accordance with the national energy and climate strategy. The goal is an energy saving of nine per cent by the year 2016.
There are energy efficiency agreements for the industry, services, the energy sector, property and building sector, municipal sector, oil sector, public transport and goods transport and logistics. Companies entering energy efficiency agreements commit to reducing their own energy consumption by first mapping the possibilities of reducing energy consumption and then implementing energy-saving measures. Companies draft annual reports on the situation. The Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment and Motiva Ltd provide further information on energy efficiency agreements.
