ABSTRACT
This article analyzes a new EU energy efficiency directive, Directive 2012/27/EU, against its predecessor, Directive 2006/32/EC, a directive intended to be a starting point for increasingly ambitious and specific policy towards energy savings in the EU. The central question in the article is how Sweden has transposed the earlier directive to achieve the levels of energy savings envisioned, and how well it is positioned to meet the provisions of the new directive. The article provides a technical analysis of Sweden’s legislative achievements with respect to the public sector and energy companies. In doing so, it seeks to contribute to legal and policy literature on future energy efficiency legislation in Sweden and beyond.
