Long-Term Agreements (MEE) on Energy Efficiency with industrial enterprises that have to participate in the EU ETS scheme, including additional 'enhancements' under the Energy Agreement

Last updated: 3 October 2019
Negotiated agreements to improve energy efficiency and enhance the use of renewable energy in the more energy intensive sectors of industry for companies under the emission trading system (ETS). Includes 4 year energy plans, realisation and reporting of measures and development of longer term roadmaps towards 2030. Under the Energy Agreement since 2013 some measures have been added/adapted to increase energy efficiency e.g. mandatory checks by RVO.nl on progress with sanctions on the use of LTA benefits in case of lack of progress and the development and implementation of periodical energy checks (in Dutch, EPK). There are now consequences for non-compliance with the agreements in the energy plans (EEP) and every company receives an annual progress declaration if the planned measures in the EEP have been implemented and the associated minimum saving has been achieved.
