EU action plan 20-20-20
The European Union has taken several measures to:
produce 20% less greenhouse gasses compared to 1990;
have a 20% share of renewable energy in all energy provision;
lower the primary energy use by 20%;
The EU Eco-Design translates this action plan into clear and concrete targets for heating and cooling efficiency. With as a main goal: reducing their environmental impact. It is within this framework that a new measure of seasonal efficiency is being developed that will replace the outdated nominal measurement method.
