§ 3 Energy savings targets

(1) The aim of the measures under this law is to improve the efficiency of energy use by end customers in Germany To increase the cost-effectiveness of energy services and other energy efficiency measures. To this end, the Federal Government sets out energy-saving values, which are to be achieved as a target for energy savings by May of 2017, as well as a strategy for achieving these goals. The indicative value shall be calculated in accordance with Annexes I, II and IV to Directive 2006 /32/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 5 November 2006. 2 April 2006 on energy end-use efficiency and energy services and repealing Council Directive 93 /76/EEC (OJ L 93, 31.3.1993, p. 64). (2) The values of energy savings should be achieved by means of economic and appropriate measures. Measures shall be economic if, in general, the necessary expenses can be generated within the normal useful life by the savings which have been made. In the case of measures in the inventory, the expected useful life must be taken into account. In order to achieve the energy saving values, in particular:
1.
the necessary energy efficiency mechanisms, incentives and institutional, financial and the legal framework and the elimination of market barriers which prevent the efficient use of energy by end customers;
2.
the conditions for the development and promotion of a market for energy services and for the provision of other energy efficiency measures for the end customers.
(3) The public sector comes in with energy efficiency improvement a role model function. To this end, the public sector uses energy services and carries out other energy efficiency measures, the main focus of which is on economic measures, which lead to energy savings in a short time. In particular, the public authorities will not go beyond the energy efficiency requirements of the Energy Saving Ordinance in their current version, particularly in their construction work, while taking account of economic efficiency. The public shall be informed of measures taken in accordance with the provisions of sentences 2 and 3.(4) The Federal Government shall submit to the German Bundestag up to the 30. April 2017 and up to 30. In each case, an energy efficiency action plan within the meaning of Article 24 (2) of Directive 2012/27/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25 April 2020 shall be adopted.
