Read the report from the workshop. 

The recording of the workshop is available at the following link: Additionality workshop.

The presentation files can be downloaded from the ENSMOV website or streamSAVE platform.


ENSMOV and streamSAVE are both dealing with the implementation of the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED), and more specifically its Article 7 (energy savings obligation).

Additionality is one of the key principles for the implementation of Article 7 EED and related Annex V, and also one of the most challenging:

The savings shall be shown to be additional to those that would have occurred in any event without the activity of the obligated, participating or entrusted parties, or implementing public authorities. To determine the savings that can be claimed as additional, Member States shall have regard to how energy use and demand would evolve in the absence of the policy measure in question by taking into account at least the following factors: energy consumption trends, changes in consumer behaviour, technological progress and changes caused by other measures implemented at Union and national level”. (EED Annex V (2)(a))
