EU Directive (2012/27/EU)
The UK has set its indicative national energy efficiency target on the basis of final energy consumption. This means the indicative target is 129.2 MTOE on a net calorific basis, which would amount to an 18% reduction (28.5 MTOE) from the UK's 2007 business as usual project projection for 2020. This indicative target has been set taking into account the overarching European goal of reducing energy consumption by 20% relative to 2007 PRIMES projection of 2020 demand.
