This report gives a summary overview of the status quo in Appliance Energy Efficiency Policy in six Central and Eastern European Countries (CEEC): Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia, Croatia, Bulgaria and Romania. The information presented is taken from country questionnaires, which were completed by country representatives (government and/or national energy agency) during the summer of 2002. Full reports of the completed questionnaire are annexed to this report. Additionally, this report gives a short overview of historical and recent developments in EU appliance energy efficiency policy, as a basis for assessing the progress made in CEEC. This overview is compiled as a quick introduction in the relevant EU policy, and is not a complete overview. The reader is advised to broaden his or her perspective by further reading on this matter, as suggested in the section “additional information”.
This report was prepared as documentation for the Climate Technology Initiative (CTI) Central & Eastern European Country Workshop on the Appliance Energy Efficiency – Early Adoption Project on November 15, 2002 in Berlin, Germany.
