The Energy Efficiency Coordination Group (EECG) is a regional coordination platform that steers the implementation of the Energy Community energy efficiency acquis. The Group meets generally three times per year.
The Energy Efficiency Coordination Group evolved from a Task Force established in 2007 to a Coordination Group with a mandate granted for an unlimited period of time due to the challenges ahead.
The key task of the Energy Efficiency Coordination Group is to facilitate the transposition of energy efficiency directives into national legislation and support their effective implementation in practice. In parallel, the Energy Efficiency Coordination Group plays an important role as an initiator, coordinator and implementation partner of diverse regional technical assistance and investment programmes.
The Energy Efficiency Coordination Group brings together representatives of ministries and agencies in charge of energy efficiency from Contracting Parties and Observer countries, the European Commission and the donors community (European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, World Bank, KfW, Open Regional Fund for South East Europe Energy Efficiency, EU4ENERGY, etc.).
