    Requires suppliers of energy (electricity, gas, heating oil, LPG, heat, refrigeration) to meet government-mandated targets for energy savings achieved through the suppliers residential and tertiary customers. The energy savings certificates (CEE) scheme is based on a three-yearly obligation to make energy savings under CEEs (1 CEE = 1 kWh cumac61 of final energy). The third period (2015-2017) had a target of 850 TWh cumac for the period, of which 150 TWh cumac is for households in fuel poverty. The fourth period (2018-2020) increases the CEE target for the fourth period (2018-2020) to 1 600 TWh cumac, of which 400 TWh cumac is for households in fuel poverty.

    Requires that all new homes and buildings for sale must undergo an energy performance evaluation (an energy performance diagnostic, or DPE), and receive an energy performance certificate. The certificate indicates both the level of energy consumption and the greenhouse gas (GHG) emission level, on a scale of A to G, with G being least efficient and highest GHG emissions. The diagnostic must be accompanied with recommendations on improving the buildings energy efficiency. The diagnostic and certificates must also be provided for rentals, and is to be provided for all new construction where the building permit was submitted after 1 July 2007. DPE applies to all public buildings, and public display of the certificate is mandatory.

    2013 cap for emissions from fixed installations is set at 2,084,301,856 allowances as part of Phase 3.

    Between 2013-2020, this cap decreases each year by 1.74%, amounting to a reduction of 38,264,246 allowances each year (EU Emissions Cap). Auctioning is the default method for allocating allowances and 300 million allowances set aside in the New Entrants Reserve to fund the deployment of innovative renewable energy technologies and carbon capture and storage through the NER 300 programme (Phase 3).

    In 2021, the pace of annual reductions in allowances increases to 2.2%.(Phase 4).

    By 2030, reduce 25% of its Greenhouse Gases and Short Lived Climate Pollutants emissions below BAU (973 MtCO2eq per year) levels. This commitment implies a reduction of 22% of GHG and a reduction of 51% of Black Carbon. The 25% reduction could increase up to a 40% in a conditional manner, subject to a global agreement addressing important topics including international carbon price, carbon border adjustments, technical cooperation, access to low-cost financial resources and technology transfer, all at a scale commensurate to the challenge of global climate change. Within the same conditions, GHG reductions could increase up to 36%, and Black Carbon reductions to 70% by 2030.
