In 2014, Malta introduced energy efficiency obligations targeting energy savings between 2014 to 2020 of 111.6 GWh in final energy. This policy covers residential gas and electricity. Eligible energy efficiency measures include installing smart meters and rising block tariffs. Monitoring and verification appears to be top-down evaluations of energy consumption before and after measures. The obligated party is Enemalta Corporation which is the monopoly distributor. Penalties can be up to EUR 100 000 total or EUR 600 for each day of non-compliance.
