Report on the energy efficiency obligation scheme (EEO)

The report is about the effort made by the Ministry of Energy, Utility and Climate to promote cost-effective energy savings. The EEO defines the requirements and rules that determine how the utility companies should achieve the energy savings. The ministry is responsible for ensuring that the energy savings reported by the utility companies meet the rules of the EEO and have been implemented as cost effectively as possible. 

The purpose of the study is to assess whether the Ministry of Energy, Utility and Climate has ensured that the EEO promotes cost-effective energy savings. The report answers the following questions: 

  • Has the Ministry of Energy, Utility and Climate adequately ensured that reported energy savings are in accordance with the provisions of the EEO?
  • Has the Ministry of Energy, Utility and Climate adequately ensured that the utility companies achieve energy savings at the lowest possible costs? 

It is Rigsrevisionen’s overall assessment that the Ministry of Energy, Utility and Climate’s effort to ensure that the EEO promotes cost-effective energy savings has been unsatisfactory.
