In compliance with article 14, paragraph 2 Directive 2006/32/EC on energy end-use efficiency and energy services (ESD) a first National Energy Efficiency Action Plan (NEEAP) has been set up. For the Action Plan an indicative energy savings target for 2016 has been calculated, equal to 9% of average energy use in the period 2001-2005 for end-users not being part of the EU emission trading system. An assessment of the energy savings to achieve the target for 2016, and an intermediate target for 2010, was made. The set of (policy) measures to improve energy efficiency in the Netherlands was described, with special emphases on the requirements regarding the exemplary role of the public sector and information and advice to final customers. The Action Plan is described in the appendix. This report gives background information on the calculation of the target, the assessment of energy savings and the relation between target and savings.
