The Intelligent Energy Europe program ENSPOL(Energy Saving Policies and Energy Efficiency Obligation Schemes) is a 30 months project, with the aim to support MS who intend to set up new EEO schemes (Austria, Bulgaria and Greece) or implement alternative measures (The Netherlands) that could create synergies with a future EEO, as well as inform the on-going development of existing schemes (Belgium, Denmark, France, Italy, Poland, UK), and support MS with an existing EEO scheme to improve it, learning from and building on existing experiences.

The specific objectives of ENSPOL are to:

a) Assess the relative strengths and weaknesses of EEOs and alternative measures based on the existing experiences and plans of MS and make recommendations for the most appropriate approaches against different criteria and under different conditions.

b) Improve the knowledge and capabilities of MS (both within and outside of the project) with regards to the different options available for implementation of Article 7 (EEOs and alternative measures)

c) Ensure the effective engagement of the broad range of stakeholders with an interest in the implementation of Article 7 and promote a wide consultation and

d) Complement and enhance the work of existing EU and MS initiatives concerned with the implementation of Article 7 EED
