Energy efficency: final (primary) energy consumption
The legislative requirements under Directive 2012/27 / EU refer to two aspects of EU's energy data: the measured energy consumption and consumption expected to 2020 in a standard economic scenario. In particular the measured energy consumption should be 20% lower than expected.
The reference values for 2020 are set out in Article 3 of Directive 2012/27 / EU: for the achievement of energy efficiency, energy consumption in EU 28 must not exceed 1.483 Mtoe of primary energy or, equivalently, 1.086 Mtoe final energy. For Italy, the national target is respectively 158 Mtoe for primary energy and 124 Mtoe for the final one.
