Presented at: ECEEE Summer Study 2009, La Colle sur Loup, France, 1-6 juni 2009.

Trends in energy savings policy for households in EU-27 countries have been analysed, based on policy measures available in the MURE-database. It regards the amount and type of policy measures over time, differences between countries, coverage of targeted energy uses, qualitatively estimated impact, etc. The results cover the past period 1990-2007. The National Energy Efficiency Action Plans of EU-27 countries, required by the Energy Service directive of the EC, have been analysed as to the measures chosen by each MS. It regards both saving measures as well as policy measures. The results, obtained as part of the EMEEES-project, cover the period 2008-2016. The results for the past and for the future are compared to see whether changes in policy making have occurred recently. On the one hand the focus is on EU-wide trends and catching-up of new member states. On the other hand the focus is on developments for specific policy measures per country. The comparison will also highlight the role of EU-policy in intensifying the energy savings efforts in European countries
